These Peanut Butter Muffins are full of chocolate chips, and have plenty of peanut butter flavor. They are simply delicious!

Peanut butter is a staple at my house. We go through tons of it in tasty recipes like these muffins, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Scones, and Peanut Butter Waffles. Bring on the peanut butter, baby!

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. These peanut butter muffins are good with or without chocolate chips, but of course chocolate makes them better. 🙂

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. 🙂
