Banana & Peanut Butter Chip & Marshmallow Muffins {Cupcake Book Club}

This month's Cupcake Book Club book is/was Leftovers by Stella Newman. The story is about a woman who takes a quiz in a fashion magazine that tells her she is a leftover. But is it so bad to be a leftover? I mean you might have been yesterdays dinner, but today you can be transformed into something new with a few minor changes.

Our main character, Susie, has a thing for pasta. Pasta is easy to add to any leftover to make it a new dish. I had thought about posting my homemade mac and cheese, but I forgot to take pictures.

Then just this weekend I had 3 black, not brown, black bananas. Our main character never throws anything away including black bananas. I thought I'd take a note out of her book and make banana muffins. Using my tried and tested banana muffin recipe (below) and adding in a 1/2 cup of peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup mini marshmallows.

The Best Banana Muffins:
3-4 ripe bananas smashed
5 tbsp melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven 350F/180C. Mix bananas and butter. Mix in sugar, egg and vanilla. Sprinkle in baking soda and salt and mix. Slowly add flour, blending after each addition. Place in muffin pan, lined or unlined. Bake 18-20 minutes. 
Add 1/2 cup of this or 1/2 cup of that. I added peanut butter chips and marshmallows this time! 

I enjoyed Leftovers and I would recommend it to any one who loves a good light novel. There is still time to read and make something to join in this month's book club if you were so inclined to do so!!
