Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins

These Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins are full of chocolate chips, and have plenty of peanut butter flavor. They are so yummy!

I posted a recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip muffins more than two years ago. My family loves them, but they call for buttermilk, and sometimes I’m out of buttermilk. (And who has time to run to the store before breakfast?) So I wanted to find another muffin recipe we liked just as much that doesn’t require buttermilk. I tried a few recipes before stumbling upon this one.
Recipe for Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Muffins
These muffins are darn yummy! Of course, I expected that they would be, they have more oil and sugar than my other recipe. I used part whole wheat flour, so it balances out, right? They also have more peanut butter, so the peanut butter flavor is more pronounced.  My other recipe makes a more light and fluffy muffin; while these are more dense and moist. Half of my family prefers one recipe, half prefers the other. But they all told me that they would happily eat either one of them. 🙂
