We interrupt the pumpkin and apple programming to bring you some CHOCOLATE!

Ohmgosh I think I may be burnt out on pumpkin! No, wait. False alarm.  I still want more pumpkin and I think it’s gonna need to happen soon…

Today, however, it’s all about my all-time favorite, can’t get enough of it, want to marry it, peanut butter and chocolate combo.  Life just doesn’t get any better.  Unless, of course, it’s pb and chocolate for breakfast.

True story. I made these muffins last week to try to get a little bit of a jump start on my upcoming trip to Virginia (going to a turkey farm people!)

While I was in my room trying to figure out what shoes/boots were appropriate to wear to a walnut orchard for my Diamond trip on Friday (more on that later), the timer for the oven went off and I totally didn’t hear it.  I walked in a few minutes later and was super bummed to see some pretty brown muffins.  And not the pretty brown we all know and love.

I let them cool for a few seconds before giving one a try.  Despite being over-baked, it was amazingly delicious! So peanutty and fabulous…I had to make another batch! Fortunately I had jut enough ingredients to get another batch in the oven and this one turned out beautifully.

These muffins are fairly dense just like a traditional banana bread but just smack of peanut butter flavor. Studded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, you get the perfect amount of chocolate and peanut butter flavor in every bite.

Now you’d think we’d have tons leftover seeing as how I made two batches of these muffins.  Nope.  Gone in the blink of an eye.  They seemed to become everyone’s favorite breakfast as well as the snack of choice for after school and late night. Can’t say that I blame them.

The best way, and dare I say the only way to enjoy these muffins is with a big, cold glass of milk. Perfection.

  16. I didn’t see a review from anyone else who made these, so I thought I would comment. I made them last night. They are very, very good. The author was right when she said they are dense like a banana bread. Two thumbs up!

  17. I made these yesterday and they are stupendous! Moistest muffin ever!

  18. Carolyn says:

    I just made these. Popped one in my mouth fresh out of the oven and OMG… simply heaven!! I made one batch of 24 mini muffins.. baked 15 minutes and they came out perfect. Second batch of regular sized (able to get 9 out of remaining batter) in oven now!

  19. Great recipe. I make this recipe in 2 loaf pans, bake for about 30 – 40 minutes. Irresistible for sure. Our new standby for overripe bananas.

  20. Delish and super easy! As good as a cupcake! Will make again!! :)

  21. this is a great and easy recipe! the muffins came out delicious!

  22. Diane Watson says:

    I have been in a serious muffin mood. It’s just been beyond cold…and snowy. It’s been either hauling endless loads and load of fire wood or getting on the 4 wheeler and plowing until my face is frozen. I needed some cheering up. So, I collected a good handful of various muffin recipes off the internet to try out. I really did not care for the first one, the second one was…okay, and this recipe is the third I’ve tried. THIS one is a KEEPER! The other two I will never make again, these, I absolutely would! In fact, I’m glad I still have more bananas and enough peanut chips to do this again. I might even be willing to share some. :) Thank you for a great recipe.
