Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

I was trying to figure out what I was going to take with us to my hubby's parents house and thought, granola for a quick/healthy meal, some cookies to snack on and these muffins from Annie's Blog that I've wanted to make forever. My hubby's dad has to have surgery Monday and I thought these would help them during the weekend and next week while, I am sure, there will be much running around to do!

Now Annie had beautifully puffed golden domes on hers and I was afraid mine wouldn't hold up, but I was wrong, they are gorgeous. Must be the recipe~

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins


2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

2/3 cup brown sugar

6 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled

½ cup peanut butter

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

¾ cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375°. Line a muffin pan with 12 paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, peanut butter, eggs and milk until smooth. Add in the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Divide batter evenly between prepared muffin tins, filling each to the top.

Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

I doubled this recipe and it worked perfectly!
