Goodies, Gluttony and Peanut Butter Muffins

At the recent Food Bloggers of Canada Conference we received so many free samples and gifts that I completely filled a separate suitcase.  When I got home I spread it all out on the dining room table, partly to see what all I got and mostly to brag to my DH how my conference was so much better than any conference he had been to.  It’s this wonderful one uppance game we play called love.

Once I had everything laid out I had this incredibly need to try it all.  Its that moment when you are at a buffet and instead of picking the things you really want to try you instead fill your plate with one of everything.  Then you find yourself over eating and really not enjoying anything at all.  Well I had a moment or three like that.  For one whole day I think all I ate was Walker’s shortbread, organic chocolate and anything pickled.  The next day cheese, crackers and ,blush, chocolate cups filled with whip cream. I did however top it with a raspberry and take the time to photograph it.

After two days of pure idiocy I slowed down, put stuff away (but first took a picture of it all, as a reminder, you know for love) and gave my head a shake.   It was time to get it together and get back in the kitchen.

Is there one food,  just one food delicacy that makes you lose all sense and throwing caution to the wind devour all that is in sight? For me it’s mini bocconcini. I could eat it like popcorn.  I buy it all the time to make DH his favorite caprese salad.

I have yet to make a salad complete with the cheese.

No matter what size container I can’t stop at just one.  It’s now to the point I give up the idea of making the salad and try really hard not to buy it on my trips to the grocery store.What food item is it for you?

But like I said back into the kitchen.  Instead of eating everything I had laid out on the table it was time to cook with it.  One of the samples we received was Kraft’s new Peanut Butter with Bananas and granola.  What a great idea! I tried it and thought muffins.  Again another great ideas.  Try these.  They are fantastic.  A rock band ate them and enjoyed them.  But that’s a whole other story.

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In another bowl bet together the milk, eggs and vanilla.

Using two knifes or a pastry blender, cut the butter and peanut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Close but not quite crumby enough.

That’s better.

Pour in the milk/egg mixture and mix until just combined. I love when I get good pouring shots.

Fill each muffin cup 3/4 full.

Sprinkle with banana chips.

Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
