Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter Glaze

One of my best friends is obsessed with bananas. Banana pancakes, banana gelato, banana milkshakes- she loves them all. In fact, I won’t be surprised if the cake at her wedding is banana flavored. Unfortunately, said best friend is in Italy right now on vacation– where she discovered, might I add, that banana gelato is…

My mom went absolutely crazy for this bread. She’s thoroughly enjoyed my past bread recipes, especially my recipe for healthy Banana Bread, but her love for this bread was different.
