Peanut Butter Swirled Double Chocolate Muffins

Made these gorgeous PB swirled double chocolate muffins for a tea-time get together at school and I was really glad that I was gone faster then I expected. The muffin was moist, spongy, and bursting with deep dark chocolate flavours.

I loved how the PB turned out a slightly golden hue after its baked, and that the tinge of saltiness from the PB helps bring out the bitter sweet flavour of the chocolate even more! Plus there is no need for fancy kitchen mixer! Just a large mixing bowl, small mixing bowl, and a small container for your slightly melted PB! Here’s how to make the PB swirled chocolate muffins! 🙂

    Hi, I have baked the Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins with Peanut Butter Chips. They are really nice! Can I know if muffins from this recipe yield the same results too? i.e. as moist and as soft as per the Double Chocolate Buttermilk Muffins with Peanut Butter Chips? Thanks for the great recipe 😉

    Hi Sharon, just one more question. I don't see baking powder in the ingredient lists. Is it not required?

      Hi Jill, that's because baking soda is used. Actually unsweetened cocoa powder has a lot of health benefits. too much chocolate (the sweetened kind) is not good for you but raw unsweetened cocoa powder is low in calories and good for the body. 🙂
