Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Whole Grain Muffins

It sounded like a fun idea to make chocolate and peanut butter muffins. It is a yummy combination, so why not make it into a muffin. I made 2 kinds one with cocoa one without. You can decide which one sounds best.  They are made from whole grains so they are great to eat anytime of the day.


1/4 C natural peanut butter
1/2 C honey
2/3 C coconut oil
1/2 C almond milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 C cooked quinoa (I used leftovers from cooked cereal)
1 1/3 C old fashioned oatmeal
1 1/3 C whole grain (I used Kamut flour)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 T cocoa * (for chocolate version)
1/2 C dark chocolate chips

Directions  Makes 1 dozen muffins heat oven to 350

1. In a bowl beat together peanut butter, honey, oil. Beat until nice and creamy. While Beating add the milk, eggs and vanilla.
2. Stir in the quinoa, oats, flour, salt, soda, baking powder, and *cocoa. Stir until all blended.
3. Fold in the chips.
4. Scoop into greased muffin cups and place in hot oven. Bake 12-15 min or until done. Don't let them over bake.
5. Cool on cooling rack.
6. Enjoy!
