Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins with Peanut Butter Frosting

Easily one of my favorite muffins.

This banana bread is all decked out.

It’s made with cocoa powder, oatmeal, and of course bananas, then topped with a quick and easy peanut butter frosting that’s slightly thicker than a glaze.

This chocolate banana bread is so good on it’s own, but when topped with peanut butter frosting, it’s even better.

The peanut butter frosting tastes wonderful along with each bite of the chocolate muffin.

It even doubles for a dessert when fancied up with decorative muffin liners and sprinkles.
