Chocolate & Peanut Butter (or No-Nut Butter) Muffin Tops

Servings 18 Muffin Tops or Standard Size Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder I prefer a dark chocolate cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt optional
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4-5 large ripe bananas smashed or pureed (about 2 1/4 cups)
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2-1 cup chocolate chips mini chips work great!
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter or Sneaky Chef No-Nut Butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray your muffin top pan (or muffin pan) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugars, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well to combine.
  • In a separate bowl combine butter, eggs, bananas, Greek yogurt and vanilla extract. Mix with electric mixer to fully combine.
  • Combine wet ingredients and dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Scoop batter into greased muffin top pan or muffin pan.
  • Place peanut butter or No-Nut Butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave starting at 10 seconds. You want to melt your peanut butter enough that you can drizzle it, this may take 10-20 seconds (or more) depending on your microwave. Once melted, drizzle a small amount on top of each muffin or muffin top with a spoon.
  • Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of each muffin.
  • Bake muffin tops for approximately 10-13 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of muffins comes out clean and tops spring back lightly when touched. For regular muffins, bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of muffins comes out clean and tops spring back lightly when touched.
  • Let cool for approx five minutes in pans, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Once completely cooled, I prefer to store mine in the fridge and freezer in freezer style zipper bags. Enjoy!
