Flour: Instead of using regular white, all purpose flour, I used white whole wheat flour to make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip muffins a bit healthier!
Sugar: Regular white sugar is so versatile and is great for baking. BUT did you know that you can easily substitute coconut sugar in recipes like this one, and it still delivers that sweetness with a healthier, less refined sugar!
Oil: Oil and butter are not the only ingredients that make muffins moist (sorry but I had to use that word)! In this recipe, I used peanut butter and greek yogurt and they make these muffins tender and fluffy!
How to make Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins
We’ve got our craving for something with peanut butter and chocolate, we’ve rounded up our ingredients to make that dream come true, and I’d say we’re rearing to go! Here is how to make these tasty muffins:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl until well combined and set aside.
In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the peanut butter until smooth, which should take about a minute. Add the yogurt, stevia, coconut sugar, egg, extract and milk and whisk until the mixture is well combined.
Carefully fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and stir until just combined. Add the peanut butter chips and gently stir them in as well. Cover and refrigerate the batter for about 30 minutes.
Fill the Pan
Evenly distribute the batter in your muffin tin using a spoon or large cookie scoop, and fill each section almost to the top.
Sprinkle extra chips on top if desired and bake for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake an additional 14-16 minutes. A toothpick will come out clean when the muffins are ready!
Cool and Enjoy
Let the muffins rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool the rest of the way. Once cool enough for your liking, DEVOUR!
