Peanut Butter Banana Power Muffins

Si initially created this recipe when her daughter, Brooke (@femalefoodie on Instagram) was training for an Iron Man race. It consists of a 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bicycle ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run, raced in that order and without a break. She wanted to create something filling for Brooke to eat for breakfast while she trained to keep her full!

You can make these muffins ahead, freeze them, and pull them out the night before to be thawed by morning. Or, you can just throw them in the microwave to thaw.
