Peanut Butter Muffins

Peanut Butter Muffins

Rejoice: they’re not as bad for you as they could be if they tried harder, these suckers.

I used the muffin machine, and got 4 medium-to-large + 1 small muffins out of the batter, baking them for about 14 minutes. But I’m giving you the (doubled) oven recipe version, because really, what crazy person has a muffin machine anyway?

Peanut Butter Muffins:

Non-stick cooking spray
1 cup (256 g) creamy or crunchy peanut butter
1/4 cup (60 g) vanilla soy yogurt or other nondairy yogurt
2/3 cup (128 g) Sucanat or light brown sugar
1 cup (235 ml) plain soy or other nondairy milk
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups (180 g) whole-wheat pastry flour or all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon (14 g) baking powder
2/3 cup (116 g) nondairy semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Lightly grease a standard muffin tin with spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together peanut butter, yogurt, Sucanat, milk, salt, and extract, until perfectly smooth.
Sift flour, cinnamon, and baking powder on top of the wet ingredients. Fold dry into wet ingredients, being careful not to over mix. Fold in chocolate chips.
Divide batter into muffin tin.
Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool for a few minutes before transferring onto wire rack, to let cool completely before storing.

Yield: 12 muffins

    Yep, it’s definitely time I married you :P YUM. You just made all my muffiny dreams come true!

  • These muffins sound awesome. I can totally see myself making a half batch of your batch and having me some happy times. Peanut butter is awesome!

    I approve. These look wonderful especially due to the small # of ingredients. And they’re not bad for you at all, except for the small amount of added sugar and chocolate chips, but those are clearly necessary.

    I bet I could add a mashed banana if I reduced the soymilk by half or so. Banana+PB+Choc in one convenient package is a genius idea. You could probably reduce the sugar in that case too.

    Oh man, Ryan would love these!

    Oh yum. These look amazing. (As if I need any excuse to eat more peanut butter.) I really like how the only flour used is whole wheat pastry.
