A friend turned 40 today and I baked some Banana Cupcakes for a treat at their request.  But, hey!  You only turn 40 once and I was super bummed that they had asked for plain ol’ banana muffins.  I asked if I could at least top them with peanut butter frosting and they agreed that was acceptable, so this is what I came up with:

  • 6 Tblsp soft butter
  • 2 Tblsp palm shortening
  • ~ 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 Tblsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups Trader Joe’s powdered sugar (includes tapioca starch rather than the conventional corn starch)

And I whipped it all up and topped the cupcakes once they were cool.  The frosting was sweet enough to be special without screaming “I’M 100% SUGAR!!”  However, this recipe is not GAPS-legal.
