Banana muffins on a rainy day

Some days just call for baking. Today was one of those! I love to bake. I find it very relaxing and methodical. I know many people don’t put those two features together, but I do.

Today it is rainy and cold. We didn’t even get into the 40s today. It was a day to sit back with a cup of cocoa and have a muffin… so I baked some.

Here’s the recipe I used… well sort of used. I didn’t have 1 cup of mayo, so I used a combo of mayo, sour cream and vanilla yogurt since I didn’t have enough of any to make the whole cup. I also used a combination of chocolate chips and pb chips.  They are yummy.

Colby just came home and decided to try the muffin. He doesn’t typically like muffins, but he did like the other items. He started with a microbite and ended up eating a half of a muffin. Then after I’d had the other half wished he had the whole thing. So I’d say he liked them a lot… and I do too!
