and can be made dairy-free if you choose. I am still working on the best way to write my recipes. When I write the recipe as “dairy-free” it leaves the “dairy lovers” scratching their heads trying to convert it back to a “regular” recipe. So this recipe is written for the dairy lovers, with the dairy-free suggestions on the side .:)  Let me know what you think. What works best for you?

How to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, oil, milk, eggs, and sugar with an electric mixer.

Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix only until well combined.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop mixture into baking cups or a muffin pan sprayed with cooking spray.

For the Topping:

In a small bowl mix together the butter and chocolate peanut butter.

Add the brown sugar and flour. Mix to combine. It will be dry and crumbly.

Stir in the mini chocolate chips and chopped peanuts.

Sprinkle topping over muffin batter in pan.

Bake for 22 – 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean.

Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack until ready to serve.

When I wrote this post five years ago Cassi and I were trying to decide where to live after the divorce was final. We both wanted to live near a beach and definitely somewhere with no snow!! Well, I ended up in Arizona and Cassi is in Florida…so at least one of us got an ocean. 🙂

Enjoy!!

  1. Well, you could move to Florida. Housing is reasonable. If you’re near the coast the humidity isn’t as bad as inland and there is always a breeze. But if you move to FL, come to S FL. One, because I live here. Two, because it’s just better than any other part of FL! 🙂

    I remember when you guest posted these. But I don’t remember where it was. LOL. Look good. Pinning!

  2. I love everything PB and chocolate – and these muffins are no exception! Pinned them 🙂 I have heard that if you want mild weather year round – Palm Springs is the place to be – but I’m guessing there is a huge price with that lol. We moved out here to Arizona in April, and I’ve survived the summer (so far) and although it is “hot,” there’s hardly any humidity 🙂 I don’t think it’s too bad out here – and the housing prices are still a steal in Arizona!!

  3. PB and Chocolate are great anytime and this looks yummy! Pinning for later, but I’ve never heard of Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter. Sounds like one could probably could eat that by the spoon!

  4. Holy cow, those look delicious!! I love making muffins! I live in California and just love it. It is really expensive though. 🙁 My husband and I both grew up in Mesa, Arizona and we both loved it! Great colleges and nice people, but the weather is super hot in the summer. Housing is cheap though! Anyway, good luck on making those tough decisions. Love your blog! Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Lisa,
    These look incredible! I saw your thumbnail on Marvelous Monday and had to come check these out! I pinned them (of course!) and can’t wait to make them for my family.
    Happy Monday!

  6. If you’re willing to come east, there are plenty of lovely beaches on the east coast. We love vacationing in both North and South Carolina for their beaches. These muffins sound wonderful, I love the combination of Peanut Butter and Chocolate so to have it for breakfast…yum! Thanks for sharing at Thursday’s Treasures, I’m featuring you on my Facebook page today!

  7. Lisa, these are just amazing (PINNED!), and I love that you used coconut milk. I do like the way you listed the “milk”, and then gave a non-dairy substitute! 🙂

    Good luck on the geographical decision!

    Love, Joy

  8. Dear Lisa, These muffins look fantastic!! I would love to bite into one of these…good luck with your move…I wish I could help you, but I hope you find what you are looking for.
