As we get back to work here, I wanted our first posting to be something simply delish and I believe that is what this is. One thing my family adores in life is Peanut Butter! Nothing goes better than some peanut butter and banana’s right?

Below you will find a full recipe on how to make these amazing treats but first I wanted to take the time and tell you all what is going on here at Hello Betty. We are taking a huge leap this year into the recipe business and I do hope that you will subscribe as we will have “subscribers only” recipes.

My first recipe for the new year are these amazing Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes. I must admit I am a huge fan of putting peanut butter on banana’s but why not take that a bit further, with a cupcake.
