Soft and fluffy, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins are a tasty way to start the day! Make sure you have a glass of milk nearby.
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!
So, since it is bright and early, I haven’t had breakfast, and I’m hungry, I’m sharing a little breakfast treat with you. I tried these peanut butter chocolate chip muffins a few weeks ago and I loved them.
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.
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!
