After my shopping trip, it was home to bake up these delicious Peanut Butter chocolate Chip Muffins with the kids. Trying out new recipes, and cooking with the kids is just a way of life at our house. The kids love helping and really get into it, sometimes suggesting different spices or other ingredients. While some combinations (garlic powder and muffins??) are not winners, others, like adding a touch of cinnamon are. Getting them excited about cooking is a great way to talk about nutrition, math and science. And while the muffins bake? Well, that’s a great time to snuggle up and read together!
This muffin is packed with amazing flavor, and some great healthy ingredients. I’ve adapted the recipe from here, to really make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins healthier and more flavorful. There’s no oil, and only just a touch of butter. You could swap the butter out for coconut oil or applesauce if you prefer. I love doing a mixture of whole grain and all-purpose flour in my baked goods. Wheat germ and ground flax seed add a nuttiness, along with the creamy peanut butter, of course. They also add a little boost of Omega-3, which is really important for kids.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins
This recipe makes about 15 jumbo muffins. Here’s how to make these delicious and healthy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
2/3 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons ground flax seed
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ripe banana, mashed
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2/3 cup JIF Creamy Peanut Butter
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk or almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375-degrees F. Grease a jumbo muffin tin using coconut oil.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, except brown sugar, and whisk together. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the mashed banana, butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and eggs together until fluffy. Add the milk and vanilla and mix to combine.
Slowly add the dry mixture a little at a time until just blended. Stir in the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Fill the prepared muffin tin two-thirds of the way full. Bake for 18-20 minutes – a toothpick inserted into the middle should come out slightly sticky. Let the pan set for 5 minutes before turning the muffins out onto a rack to cool.
Store in an airtight container or individual zipped bags.
