My husband is dropping my computer off at Staples today for a free checkup and tuning. They’re going to do some kind of technical computer magic, then return her to me better and faster. That’s the good news. The bad news is that I have to go a whole entire day without a computer. I hope I can handle it. 😉 I might actually have to mop the kitchen floor and finish the laundry. The horrors!

Chocolate and peanut butter lovers alike will go crazy for these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

Recipe for soft and fluffy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins

I really liked the texture of these muffins. They were both fluffy and tender at the same time. I think cutting the peanut butter into the flour added to the fluffiness, and the buttermilk made them tender. But I might not know what I’m talking about, so don’t quote me on that.

The peanut butter flavor is subtle, but I thought it was enough. And of course chocolate and peanut butter are a perfect marriage, so I loved the flavor.

Serve these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins with a glass of milk for a filling and delicious breakfast or snack!

I used part wheat flour and they were still delicious and moist. I think they would also be great with some chopped peanuts, or even peanut butter chips. Mmmm. I wish I was having them for breakfast. Maybe I should go make some right now. I’m outta here!

  1. Very yummy. I like to incorporate oatmeal in my muffins so I did 1 3/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup oatmeal. They came out perfect!

    • I do that as well, but hadn’t tried it with this recipe. Glad to hear that they turned out with some added oatmeal. Thanks so much for sharing the tip!

  2. Despite being an enthusiastic baker (both from eating and creative perspectives!)….I have never been able to make a good muffin. I have never bought a muffin either that I thought was worth any fuss ( I live in the UK).
    And then I came across this recipe- and now I have a reason to believe in the muffin!
    Just made these for breakfast…and to make the experience even better…I had run out of muffin cases and so had to make my own from greaseproof paper…..making the whole 6am trying to be a supermum thing even more satisfying!!!!
    This is a great recipe and I love the fact that it uses buttermilk….but the true crowning glory I think, was the “cutting in” (I had to interpret this my own way and gave it quick whizz with the K paddle on my mixer) of the butter and peanut butter into the flour is what I think makes these muffins so super fluffy and special.
    I can’t recommend this recipe enough…especially to any frustrated muffin bakers out there- this will change you forever!
    Thank you, Kara!

  3. These sound so good! I can’t wait to make them.

  4. These muffins were delicious! Baked them to the recipe and just added a couple more minutes to the baking time. Other than that the recipe is perfect! A great breakfast and or snack. A new spin on a buttermilk muffin with the peanut butter too 🙂 Definitely recommend!
