Banana Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

I hope that most of you are aware of the “shoes” video from several years ago, which I watched far too many times and friends and I still quote to this day. But did you know that the same guy also made a “muffins” video? It starts out all innocent then gets a little weird and takes a turn to the creepy side. Yet whenever I make muffins I always have it running through my head (followed by “OMG shoes”). Oh yea, did you catch that? I made you muffins that’s why I am talking about this random youtube video.

Thankfully these muffins contain no glass despite their sparkly nature on top. I promise those are just coarse granules of sugar ;-). And their insides are definitely not filled with blood but with banana and miniature peanut butter cups! I wish that’s what my insides were made of. Then again with how many I’ve already eaten that may actually be the case.

“I’m baking muffins asbestos I can!” – Come on, admit it. That video is at least a little amusing.
