Sunday Morning Muffins

We had 3 bananas in the fruit bowl bespeckled with the tell-tale ripe spots. I was tired of banana bread so I pulled out the pancake mix, but then decided too, that I was tired of pancakes... what could I make?
I am not a baker by any stretch of the imagination so I decided to do a Google search for muffins I could make using bananas and pancake mix. The results were these AWESOME peanut butter banana muffins with streusel topping:

• 2 cups complete pancake mix (the just add water sort)
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 cup very ripe bananas (2 to 3), mashed
• 2/3 cup sugar
• 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 1 cup creamy peanut butter
• 1/2 cup complete pancake mix
• 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
• 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
• 2 tablespoons shortening
• 1 tablespoon softened butter

1. HEAT oven to 400°F. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
2. COMBINE pancake mix, salt, bananas, sugar, eggs, oil and peanut butter in medium bowl. Stir just until moistened. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups. Make streusel by mixing pancake mix, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and shortening. Divide mixture evenly over muffin batter.
3. BAKE 14 to 16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes.

This recipe supposedly yeilds 12 muffins but I got 20 muffins out of it- maybe they mean those gigantic oversized muffin tins... in any case they rocked, everyone in the family loved them! Great use for bananas that need to be eaten up quickly!
