Chocolate muffins are stuffed full of peanut butter chips. These Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Muffins taste decadent but are actually on the light side!
Bok from Dubrovnik! That means “hi” in Croatian! TheBetterHalf and I arrived in Dubrovnik yesterday, after eating and drinking our way through Italy. We are absolutely loving Croatia so far. This is my current view…I wish I could write every blog post with this view! Talk about inspiring.
I made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Muffins before we left on our trip and we loved them so much that I just had to take a quick break from vacation to share them with you!
The most popular recipe by far on my blog are my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins. And, they are also one of the most popular recipes in my household. TheBetterHalf likes to take muffins to work, and he is constantly requesting those muffins – he is a choco pb fanatic. So to change things up a bit, I thought it would be fun to reverse my recipe and make a chocolate muffin stuffed full of peanut butter chips!
I like to lighten up my muffin recipes when I can. I cringe when I see muffin recipes that call for 3/4 cup of oil and over a cup of sugar. Of course I’m all about decadent dessert and breakfast recipes at times, but to me muffins can taste just as good without all the sugar and with a few substitutions for some of the fat – namely Greek yogurt and applesauce! So even though these chocolate peanut butter chip muffins look super rich and decadent, they are on the lighter side! I don’t want to call them skinny because they do have some oil, and peanut butter chips aren’t exactly diet food. But compared to a lot of chocolate muffin recipes out there, these are pretty light! And they are absolutely delicious.
We are muffin crazy – here are some of our favorites!
