These muffins have peanut butter and chocolate. Need I say more?



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips, for tops of muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a standard sized muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside the bowl aside. In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, melted butter, egg, milk, and sugar. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, stirring until just combined.
  3. Next, transfer half of the batter to the other bowl you used for the dry ingredients. Stir in the melted chocolate chips until it’s well combined. Pour the chocolate batter into the peanut butter batter and give it a quick stir just so it’s partially combined.
  4. Scoop a generous 1/4 cup of the batter for each muffin slot. Just enough so the batter barely reaches the top. You should have enough batter for 8 muffins. Top each muffin with a few chocolate chips. Fill the empty holes about a 1/4 of the way with water. Bake the muffins for about 30 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test. Let them cool for ten minutes in the pan before transferring to a wire rack.
