Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins

This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, "Deceptively Delicious." For those that aren't familiar with the book, it's all about hiding veggies in your kids food. It can take a lot of time to steam & puree all the veggies, so for some of them, I just use baby food. Tyler "helped" me make these & he was so excited to eat the food that he cooked!

1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. natural peanut butter
1/2 c. carrot or cauliflower puree (I used sweet potato)
1 large egg white
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix together 1/2 c. brown sugar, pb, veggie puree & egg white. In another bowl mix the dry ingredients. Combine, but don't over mix, it will be a little lumpy. Add the other 1/2 c. brown sugar & mix once or twice. Put the batter in greased or paper lined muffin cups & bake 15-20 min. (until a toothpick comes out clean). Cool muffins on a rack.

I can get Keanon to eat most veggies... got anyway to "hide" the meat?

We loved these Jess! I didn't tell Dave they had cauliflower but the smell when they were baking was very obvious (weird cauliflower smell). I waited until they cooled to eat them. Gabby loves them and I like the idea that there is a little more nutrition in them than regular bread.
