Banana Nut Muffins

J loves banana bread and peanut butter, so I tried a new spin on banana muffins for his birthday.

For 12 standard or 6 giant muffins, you'll need:

+ 3 tbsp butter, melted
+ 1 tbsp vegetable oil
+ 1/2 cup peanut butter
+ 1 egg
+ vanilla extract, 1 liberal splash
+ granulated sugar, 5 ounces
+ 2 bananas, very ripe
+ 2 tbsp honey
+ 2 tbsp brown sugar
+ 3/4 cup oats (instant or old fashioned)
+ 1 tbsp baking powder
+ salt, 1 pinch
+ 1 cup all-purpose flour
+ 1/2 - 2/3 cup Toasted Pine Nuts (recipe below)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mash bananas with honey and brown sugar, using a fork.
Whisk vegetable oil, peanut butter and melted butter until smooth. Add vanilla, egg, sugar, baking powder and salt; combine. Stir in oats and flour; fold in bananas and pine nuts.

Evenly distribute batter between muffin cups; bake for approximately 20 minutes, checking frequently. Enjoy!
