Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

PB Choc Chip Muffins (3 of 4)Thank you all so much for your sweet comments about Sophie and for your wishes to feel better! I am feeling much better, thankfully! I have gotten into a bit of a cooking/baking rut after not cooking much the past couple of weeks. I decided to bust out of that and bake some muffins for Adam’s co-workers. The first recipe I tried was a big fail and ended up in the trash.  Not the best way to get out of a rut, but I didn’t let it get me down.  I went to a different recipe and tried immediately again and they turned out great!

I just tried a small bite since they aren’t on my eating plan, but they were super moist & soft inside with a great crunch on the outside.  They would be a great breakfast or snack! Also, I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the past several times I’ve posted cupcakes or muffins I don’t use paper liners.  The reason is, I simply ran out forever ago and I NEVER remember to get any, haha!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins
Source: Annie’s Eats, originally Baking Bites

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cup brown sugar
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted & cooled
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 to 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Liberally spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper liners, set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt & brown sugar.  Whisk together until fully incorporated, set aside.

In a separate large bowl, add melted butter, peanut butter, eggs & milk.  Whisk together until fully incorporated. Stir the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture a little at a time until just incorporated. Add in chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.

Using a large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop batter into prepared muffin tins, filling them all the way full.

Bake for approximately 17 to 20 minutes until centers are set & a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Remove muffins from tin and place on a cooling rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.

  3. Yummy! Chocolate and peanut butter is an awesome combo. I never use liners for muffins because my hubby loves the crunchy outside. He feels that when you use liners you don’t always get all your muffin. So, I’ve never used them. Thanks for the great recipe. Glad you are feeling better 🙂
