This was the year. The year that our standard beloved breakfast muffin became over used. The boys wanted something new. So I picked a Sunday and deemed it – try as many muffin recipes as I could day. The boys helped with planning, production, quality control, and product testing. I’ll be posting our favorites over the next several weeks. Our first test was peanut butter chocolate chip muffins.
Our beloved breakfast muffin recipe is such a great recipe that it lends itself to “play.” In other words, it’s pretty easy to change things up a little or a lot and have really great results every time. This time, we swapped the chocolate for peanut butter and the maple syrup for honey – making peanut butter chocolate chip muffins. Imagine a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie magically made into a muffin. Oh, yeah.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 3 T Vanilla
- 1/2 c peanut butter
- 5 medium or 4 large bananas
- 1/2 c finely ground flax seed
- 1/4 c chia seeds
- 1 t baking soda
- 1 t baking powder
- 1 2/3 c almond milk
- 1/3 c honey
- 1 1/2 c oats
- 1 c oat flour
- chocolate chips
I made several versions of these – but this one with the flavor of banana in the background hit the home run! This is one of my best tips to combat “hangry.” You know hangry, right? Hungry + angry? Yep = “hangry.” My boys do hangry. And hangry can be sneaky – so I always keep a quick bag on hand with a couple of pieces of fruit and if I have some of these muffins – I grab a couple of these and toss them in before I leave the house.
These peanut butter chocolate chip muffins are amazing as part of a great breakfast or for a quick grab and go snack any time of day. The boys favorite way to have them was warm out of the oven with a little pat of butter. As I mentioned, both boys (4 and 7) helped with planning production, quality control, and product testing. I think product testing was their favorite. Both boys gave these muffins a hearty thumbs up!
