    Some days, you’re reminded with how old you really are and how times have changed. This past weekend, I went to Target to pick up some office supplies and I needed to get some canned air. I used it all the time when I was younger. My brother and I actually would have fun cleaning out the keyboard because of the canned air. It was an intriguing product – the more you used it, the colder and colder the can got. Haha, we were clearly easily amused. Anyway, so when I picked up a 2-pack of canned air this weekend, I was ID’d at the register. I actually had to ask the cashier to repeat herself and I had to do a double-take at my bag because I thought maybe she scanned someone else’s wine/beer behind me? Nope, she was really ID’ing me for canned air.

    Shocked, I showed her my ID and I said, “really? For canned air?” and she said, “yeah, that’s what kids are into these days.” I’m still shocked at this. I didn’t even realize it was something that kids would actually think to do. It’s all chemicals! I guess I’m just most surprised with how creative kids are these days to just get a “high.” I mean, I know when I was growing up, cough syrup was never something that you could buy in limited amounts, and now you have to be ID’d for canned air? I feel old :)

  • Marta @ What Should I eat for breakfast today says:

    I didn’t even know that a canned air exists :) What a strange thing. Your muffins are like small banana breads :) I like.

  • Tieghan says:

    I have no idea what canned is, but yeah, kids are weird these days. Always looking for new ways to just be kind of stupid if you ask me. LOL!

    Love these muffins, Julie!! Peanut butter, banana and chocolate a winner combo that I could never get sick of!

  • Jessica @ Portuguese Girl Cooks says:

    lol- crazy! What is the world coming to when kids are using canned air to get high. These muffins look awesome, I’m definitely making them for my next muffin batch!

  • Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health says:

    i go through that canned air sooooo quickly – I think I am addicted to spraying my keyboard.. and this muffin with Fall spices – yum yum yum.

  • Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar says:

    These muffins sound great! Awesome breakfast treat :)

  • Maria says:

    Love everything about these muffins!

  • Heather Christo says:

    these muffins are phenomenal. and I always love your anecdotes! I need some canned air too, come to think of it….

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    That’s disturbing! Of course I have the same fun memories as you do of them from growing up. Now I’ll have to find your canned air and go cleaning lol

  • Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective says:

    These muffins look fantastic! Great way to use up those really ripe bananas!

  • Marian (Sweetopia) says:

    Oh my! These look AMAZING!

  • Megan {Country Cleaver} says:

    Kids have way to much time on their hands if they realize that they can get buzzed off canned air!! Geez, I feel super old now too.

    I’ve bee ndreaming about muffins – these look so yummy, Julie!

  • Marla Meridith says:

    OMG! I need to DIVE into these muffins Julie :)

  • Carla @ Carlas Confections says:

    I would NEVER have thought you would be ID’d for that! Insane! I used to love cleaning with that stuff too haha! These muffins look insane too! Love them!

  • naomi says:

    Who knew canned air was a thing?!! As for the muffins, by family will love this combo!

  • Meagan @ A Zesty Bite says:

    Are you getting high off of canned air Julie??? You are supposed to be baking and cooking. HAHA Not even sure what kids would be doing with it.

  • Cassie says:

    I’m always surprised when i have to show ID for silly things like cough syrup. SO funny! Loving these muffins. PB + banana FTW!

  • Leah | So, How's It Taste? says:

    Love this flavor combo! Would be so good with a cup of coffee.

    Compressed air is the new thing I just found out since hearing a story of a kid that passed out in his parents yard after huffing it. The fun part? His parents want to sue Walmart because they had a huge display of it and it was too tempting to him. Um, what?

    • Julie says:

      Um, wow, that’s ridiculous, haha

  • Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain says:

    I’m totally crushing on these muffins! Chocolate and banana are the best combo!

  • Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking says:

    Oh, now this would make me a happy girl in the mornings! What a fabulous muffin with great flavors. These are awesome, Julie!

  • Tracey says:

    OMG, canned air is so fun! It’s equal parts gross and awesome to see the debris fly off the computer lol :) I had no idea they were carding for that now. I wish my freezer was full of these muffins – they’d be great weekend breakfast treats!

    • Julie says:

      LOL I love canned air for that purpose – I love seeing all the crud come out of the keyboard – but then it’s so gross cause you’re like ‘wait, seriously, how is it possible all THAT was in my keyboard??’ :)

  • Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen says:

    LOVE these flavors in breakfast muffins, Julie! Yours look moist and delicious. Yes, it is rather shocking what kids will do these days. Williams-Sonoma had to put their cartridges for cream whippers in the back room, and would only get them upon request, because kids were getting high off the air inside. Thanks for sharing. Pinning!

  • Lana says:

    These look delicious! I must try this recipe.

  • Aimee @ Simple Bites says:

    These look so fluffy! Love the dab of yogourt in there and I am a die hard choco-banan fan.

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci) says:

    I love these muffins, such a great breakfast idea!

  • Mimi @ Culinary Couture says:

    Holy trifecta of deliciousness! These are most likely going to be breakfast tomorrow.

  • Jenny Flake says:

    What perfect delish muffins!! Mmm!!

  • Linda | The Urban Mrs says:

    That’s crazy – what are they going to do with a canned air? They definitely are way too creative these days. I love everything about this muffin – peanut butter, chocolate (for sure) and banana (hooray)! Definitely a nice treat in the morning.

  • Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl says:

    I’m going to hope that when I wake up in the morning these magically appear in my kitchen!

  • Mary says:

    I couldn’t think of a better use for overripe bananas – gorgeous – your photos are stunning!
    Mary x

    • Julie says:

      Thank you so much, Mary!

  • [email protected] 'n' Cookies says:

    Gorgeous pictures, as always! And I love that you combined PB, bananas, and chocolate. These muffins look amazing y moist. And, these three ingredients happen to be some of my breakfast favorites as well. Looking forward to trying these soon!

  • Alexe @ Keys to the Cucina says:

    These look super yummy. I still have so much Chobani from when they sent me some free yogurt, so I’ve got all the ingredients on hand to make these bad boys :)

    • Julie says:

      Perfect way to use them up! Enjoy :)

  • ashley - baker by nature says:

    These muffins look amazing, Julie! I wanna eat em ALL!!!

  • Healing Tomato says:

    You are awesome! This is a great recipe and I am in awe of the pics you have posted. If you ever has the chance, please let us know your picture taking process.

    • Julie says:

      Thanks! I’ll try, I don’t want to seem like I’m an expert or anything so that’s why I’ve held off in photography tutorials:)

  • Gaby says:

    Great looking muffins! All of my favorites, peanut butter, banana and chocolate!!

  • SKD says:

    Could I easily make this into a loaf??

    • Julie says:

      Hi SKD! Sure, you could try it, but I’d make sure you don’t overfill the loaf pan with too much batter and you’d have to adjust the baking time.

  • Kevin @ Closet Cooking says:

    These muffins sound so good!

  • Kids are definitely weird these days, but I’m sure everyone says that about the next generation! :) So sad that kids would ingest pure chemicals though. What is not sad are these muffins!! I will take 3 please!! ;)

  • Lori says:

    I made these muffins and they were AWESOME! The only thing I changed was I used regular-sized chocolate chips (what I had on hand) and vanilla whole milk yogurt from Trader Joe’s (again, what I had on hand). They cooked up perfectly in a greased muffin tin. Wish I’d taken pictures! Thank you for sharing!

    • Julie says:

      Glad you enjoyed them and modified them to what you had on hand!
