OMG.

These are ADDICTIVE.

I think this is the motherload of all mini muffins ever.

Banana, peanut butter, and chocolate are by far the most amazing combination ever. When I had jaw surgery years ago, I was suffering through a liquid diet during recovery and this combination in a milkshake was the only way I got through it. Even when my friends decided to come over and break my mother’s blender while trying to help make one, it still didn’t ruin my love for this combination.

The funny thing about this recipe, the basic dough I used is actually a recipe for baked doughnuts. However since I do not own a doughnut pan and have no immediate need to go purchase one, I decided delightful miniature doughnuts would be the perfect solution to this dilemma.

Somehow this dough produces the perfect mini muffin. I don’t know how it works and I am not about to question it.
