Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Mini Muffins

The weekend goes by too fast. Wanted to do so many things - and managed to do only a few.  I managed to downsize my Halloween and Christmas decorations - had too many boxes and gave some away. That's a good thing!!

Watched some movies, read a bit, went to the gym this rmorning, started knitting a scarf and today, I baked (surprise, surprise!)

Wanted something cute and tiny so tried eatgood4life Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips Mini Muffins!


Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Mini Muffins (made 34 mini-muffins)
1 cup chunky peanut butter (used regular)
1 cup dark chocolate chips (used chocolate/peanut butter chips)
1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup milk plus 4 tablespoons
1 egg

Preheat oven to 375F (350F). Grease and flour the mini muffin pan or line with muffin liners.

In a bowl mix egg, milk (minus 4 tablespoons), peanut butter and sugar. Add flour, baking powder and chocolate chips. Pour 1 teaspoon onto each muffin hole.

When you have come to half the batter add the cocoa powder an extra 4 tablespoons of milk. Pour the remaining chocolate batter into the muffin pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until tester comes out clean. Immediately remove mini muffins from pan and cool on a wire rack.

Those look so yum! One day, I'm going to spend an entire day baking stuff from your blog. And promptly gain 30 lbs. ;)

This sounds very good and I'm wondering if using natural peanut butter, skim milk, and diet brown sugar would make it even healthier? I have a stack of notes I have taken from your Sunday baking posts. Eventually I'll have to join Janett and break down and make them (I have tried a few - but not nearly as many as I have written down). Thanks for sharing.
