Step 1: Preparation

Start your baking adventure by preheating the oven to a cozy 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Embrace the anticipation of what's to come as your kitchen warms up.
Pro Tip: Always check your oven's accuracy with an oven thermometer.

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, creamy butter, plain yogurt, farm fresh eggs, and a splash of vanilla extract. Mix these to create a smooth, homogenous mixture that promises moist cupcakes.
Pro Tip: Use overripe bananas for a sweeter, richer banana flavor.

Step 3: Combine Dry Ingredients

Whisk together white and brown sugars with baking powder and baking soda, setting the stage for a perfect rise. Gradually add the flours, mixing until just combined, to keep the cupcakes tender.
Pro Tip: Whisk the dry ingredients well to avoid any lumps.

Step 4: Fill and Swirl

Spoon the batter into a lined muffin tin, filling each cup 3/4 full. Add a dollop of peanut butter and gently swirl with a knife or skewer. This peanut butter swirl is not just a flavor boost but also an artistic touch that promises a hidden surprise in every bite.
Pro Tip: Don't over-swirl to ensure each bite has a bit of peanut butter.

Step 5: Bake

Bake the cupcakes until they pass the toothpick test, about 25 minutes. Watch as they rise and turn golden, filling your kitchen with the comforting, sweet scent of baking.
Pro Tip: Rotate the tin halfway through baking for even browning.

Step 6: Top with Fluff

Once cooled, add a touch of whimsy with marshmallow fluff on each cupcake. Then, briefly broil to achieve a beautifully toasted marshmallow top, reminiscent of childhood campfires and family gatherings.
Pro Tip: Keep an eye on the broiling marshmallow to prevent burning.

Step 7: Final Touch

To complete these delightful treats, stick a banana chip into the top of each cupcake. This not only adds a crunchy texture but also visually ties together the banana flavor theme, making each cupcake a complete story of flavors and textures.
Pro Tip: Choose a visually appealing banana chip for the perfect finishing touch.
