Peanut Butter Banana Maple Cupcakes

Banana Cupcakes topped with Peanut Butter Maple frosting!

Fluffy banana cupcakes with peanut butter maple frosting will make your tastebuds celebrate!  Peanut Butter Maple Cupcakes!  The secret ingredient is Jif’s new Maple Peanut Butter!  There is a cinnamon too, and both are delicious in frosting and even swirling it into the tops of cupcakes or muffins.  I’ve been experimenting all week with the samples they sent me 🙂

These cupcakes are perfect for everything.  Summer, fall, winter, baby showers… you name it!  You can top them with banana slices or just sprinkles. But this peanut butter is so good! I kept licking it off the spoon and finding new things to dunk in it… my roommate caught me eating it straight with a spoon!

Before I share the recipe for these cupcakes I want to tell you a few more ideas for how to use this Jif peanut butter!

Peanut butter is great with jelly, mixed into a milkshake, and even with breakfast! I tried a few of the new Jif spreads with my breakfast.. oh my!  Get ready!

Peanut Butter Banana Toast

Banana Peanut Butter (maple or cinnamon) Toast! Or you can make a sandwich out of it ORRRR you can make stuffed french toast!!! It’s okay, you can start drooling just thinking about it.  Just get two pieces of bread, put a thin layer of Jif Maple Peanut Butter and then put some slices on peanut butter on one and then sandwich the bread together.  Dunk in an egg/milk bath and cook up like you would with normal french toast!

Apples and Jif

Sometimes I need a fast breakfast.  Something I can grab and eat in the car but I want more than just a pieces of fruit or buttered toast.  So, slice up and apple and grab a jar of Jif and hit the road! The protein from the Jif will keep you going strong until lunch!

Another breakfast idea… crepes!  Slather a little of this on a crepe to give it some more umphf!

And one final look at the cupcakes…

    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was
    interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
