Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Muffins

I’ve never been a big PB&J fan, but peanut butter and chocolate is a different story. I whipped up a batch of these peanut butter chocolate chunk muffins to satisfy in pretty much insatiable sweet tooth. I might have put a tiny bit too much chocolate in these. HA! kidding that’s not even a thing.

DSC_1200I usually shy away from baking muffins since I live alone and then end up eating 6 muffins in 2 days, but since I had some friends over to share the bounty, I went for it.

These muffins are really easy to throw together, and really rich and tasty. It almost taste like a cookie in muffin form. So delicious.  Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, pretty much just great.

DSC_1160Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup AP flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 T unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • a few Hershey’s dark chocolate bars, roughly chopped

DSC_1212How To:

  1. In a medium bowl, sift together flours, baking powder and salt
  2. In another medium bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg and mix thoroughly, then add milk and mix again.
  3. Stir together the wet and dry ingredients until just combined, stir in chocolate chunks
  4. Spoon batter into a 6 cup muffin tin
  5. Bake in an oven preheated to 425 for about 5 minutes. Turn the temperature down to 375 and bake for another 12-15 minutes.
  6. Check for doneness with a toothpick, when it comes out clean they are done. Cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes, then move to wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Pig out

I’ll keep this post short and sweet. Not really much to say other than I am now pregnant with a muffin food baby.

Also, the World Cup starts this week, and for those of you who don’t know me personally, it is my favorite sporting event/any event in the world, ever, period. Hope you’re all as excited as I am! U-S-A  U-S-A  U-S-A!
