I’m always looking for new and interesting recipes to try, especially ones that are delicious! I found this recipe on Pinterest and it looked so good that I just had to make them. The best thing about these Banana & Nuttzo Nut-Butter Cupcakes is that they’re made in a muffin pan – no need to worry about how to frost the cupcakes or if you’ll be able to get nice swirls. They come out of the oven with a moist cakey texture from the banana and an amazing Nuttzo taste from peanut butter. It’s a perfect treat for any occasion.
-Most recipes you find on the internet are pretty straightforward, and this one was no exception. The ingredients called for in this recipe are bananas, Nuttzo peanut butter, sugar, eggs, vegetable oil and flour. Once all of these ingredients were mixed together I added it to my muffin pan which is when things got pretty interesting because they actually stuck! Then I baked them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 Celsius) for 20 minutes or until golden brown while keeping an eye out that they don’t burn on the sides like mine did…
A word about their taste – each cupcake had just enough sweetness from the banana without being overpowering from too much sugar or honey; plus there was just enough Nuttzo peanut butter – not too much and not too little.
And lastly, they were also super moist! I found myself making a second batch for my family who had never heard of these before…I think this could be the perfect snack to make with kids because it’s so easy to do and tastes great. The only thing that might have been missing was chocolate frosting but adding some sifted cocoa powder in lieu of milk or heavy cream would add just enough sweetness without overpowering the rest of the recipe.
On a related topic. I always get the question:” How do you make a cupcake more delicious?”
A valid answer for this question is in the recipe below. It’s slightly different form the one already mentioned above. For this one, I used a vanilla cupcake to get the basic flavor.
I then added Nuttzo-Nut Butter for more of that nutty, creamy taste we all love so much about this time of year!
This recipe is perfect for any occasion and will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. To be even more festive, you can always add some candy cane or peppermint extract in there too!
A little goes a long way when it comes to spices but they really compliment these cupcakes well. As do sprinkles (candy) which are mixed into the frosting on top as decoration after baking.
½ Cup Plain Yogurt – ½ CUP Sugar – ¼ TSP Vanilla Extract – ⅓ CUP Nuttzo-Nut Butter – ⅓ CUP All Purpose Flour – ¼ TSP Baking Powder
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Add flour, sugar, vanilla extract and baking powder into medium sized bowl; stir until well mixed. Add in yogurt, nuttzo-nut butter and mix until combined (no need for mixer). Mix in the egg one at a time just until blended. Fill cupcake liners about ½ way full with batter then bake for 13 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean from center of cake pan (should come out without any crumbs on it) Allow them to cool completely before frosting.
Frost with Nuttzo-Nut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe below) and garnish cakes with a few chopped nuts on top if desired before serving to friends, family or guests!
What’s so special about cupcakes?
First, they are irresistible. They have a buttery moist cake with fluffy frosting and sprinkles, which is enough to make your mouth water just reading about them! Second, they’re small-sized so you can eat more than one without feeling guilty (or bloated).
Third, they come in all shapes and sizes; there’s no rule that says cupcakes need to be round. You could get creative by using different types of pans or molds for some extra variety. Finally, everyone loves chocolate! That rich fudgy brownie flavor makes it the perfect treat any time of year – especially when topped off with a sweet swirl of creamy vanilla icing on top.
