Mother’s Day Banana Peanut Butter Cupcakes with Roasted Marshmallow Frosting

This cupcake is an ode to my mom. She used to talk about how she loved taking a piece of bread, spread some peanut butter on it, put banana slices on that and top with marshmallows. She would then place it in the oven with the broiler on to roast the marshmallows. This cupcake takes all those flavors and combines them together, while also reducing fat. So Happy Mother’s Day Mom, maybe you can get younger sister to make these for you.
