Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

There's not much to say about these beauties. What more could you want in a cupcake? Chocolate, peanut butter, banana? Okay, maybe I'd want some coconut in there but I'd say it's a pretty perfect trifecta as is. Try them. You will not be disappointed. 

Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
