One thing my kids love for me to make is banana bread. If they wake up or come home from school and smell that tell tale banana bread smell, they get very excited and I literally can’t keep them from trying to eat the banana bread or muffins while they are too hot! This gluten free banana cranberry muffin recipe is one they really like. If you don’t eat gluten free, simply sub your regular flour for the gluten free flour! So when I found this recipe for peanut butter banana bread, I knew I had to make it for the kids and share it with all of you!
