Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches = comfort...Freshly baked muffins = comfort...PB & J Banana Muffins = the ultimate comfort treat!!! 

really like peanut butter and jelly; I think most people do, it's a classic after all. Remember those jars of Smucker's Goober peanut butter and jelly stripes? I honestly think I only tried it once, many, many years ago and I remember that pre-made artificial concoction didn't live up to the hype. These muffins on the other hand, are a delicious alternative to the typical pb and j sandwich. 
This is a fairly simple recipe inspired by the vegan banana muffins I made a few weeks ago.  Yes, they're vegan and incredibly good! I'm pretty sure you'll love these muffins as much as I do. Always remember to use good quality, natural peanut butter - avoid hydrogenated oils at all cost! 
Choose your favorite jelly for your filling and be creative with your choice: fig, boysenberry, strawberry, raspberry, apricot, etc.. . Better yet, make your own preserves! I was also thinking since this is a peanut butter banana batter, honey might be a tasty option in the middle instead of jelly. 

Hmmm... I think I'm going to bake some of those tonight! I'll let you know how it goes.
Some may prefer a tall glass of cold milk, I opted for unsweetened green iced tea.

Since the batter consists of peanut butter banana - I had to include an Elvis song...
1)  Elvis:  It's Now or Never
2)  Pink Floyd:  Another Brick in the Wall
3)  Ramones:  Rock n' Roll High School
4)  Neil Young:  Heart of Gold
5)  Ceci Bastida:  Ya Me Voy
