Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins
Peanut butter is amazing right?, don’t you think? Well I do, I love it it’s just soooo yummy and works well in savoury and works aaaaamazingly in sweet as well. When I have made anything sweet using peanut butter, most people do find it odd, but it’s same as salted carmel, adding the salty, savoury to sweet works really well.
I was interested to try this recipe for peanut butter muffins, they seemed really moist and creamy. Mine didn’t turn out as moist I think I overcooked them arrhhhh…it’s such a simple thing to do, all oven are different but I always forget to check :s. I should really learn from my mistakes.
I brought this new muffin tin from Ikea, I’ve seen it in there for a while and thought you know what I’m going to treat myself. It’s amazing and gives a really different ‘cafelike’ muffin look! I would advise you to buy one.
- 11/2 cups - plain flour
- 1/2 cup - whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp - baking powder
- 1/2 tsp - salt (I didn't add this)
- 2 tbsp - unsalted butter, at room temperature (I used oil)
- 2/3 cup - smooth peanut butter
- 2/3 cup - packed light brown sugar
- 2 - large eggs
- 1 cup - milk
- 3/4 cup - chocolate chips
- 1. Preheat oven to 220°C and spray a 12 count muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
- 2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt.
- 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the butter or oil, peanut butter and brown sugar until smooth and well combined. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add the milk and stir until combined.
- 4. Add the dry ingredients (I added the chocolate chips too) to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined - do not over mix. Mix in the chocolate chips.
- 5. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, filling them evenly. If desired, sprinkle the tops with mini chocolate chips.
- 6. Bake for 5 minutes at 220°C, then turn the heat down to 190°C and bake for 12 - 15 minutes check as it maybe done quicker.
- 7. Let them cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
