Mini peanut butter chocolate chip muffins

March 30, 2017

I wanted to bake something up quickly that would fill a peanut butter chocolate crave.. Throughout my weight loss journey I always stood by the saying that a little can go a long way. By taking a small amount of peanut butter or chocolate and drizzling it over things you get that fix you need without using up all of your points and your not left feeling not only sick but guilty. These muffins are the perfect example of that, sure you can find a recipe that has lots of peanut butter in them and a cup of chocolate chips, but you will probably have that feeling of “are these worth it” which just happened to be the topic at my weight watcher meeting this week.. These mini PB & chocolate chip muffins I made are only 1 smart point each, there is just enough peanut butter and chocolate to leave you satisfied.. and most times that is all you need.. Bake some up today, you will love them!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, spray a 24 mini muffin tin with some non stick spray.
  2. In a bowl whisk together your egg and egg whites, stir in your brown sugar. Mix in apple sauce, milk and vanilla.
  3. Stir in your flour, baking powder and soda.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips and divide into your 24 mini muffin cups.
  5. Place your peanut butter in a small microwave safe bowl and heat for approx 60 seconds. Using a small spoon drop small amounts onto each muffin, then use a toothpick to swirl the best you can, sometimes the PB will harden and that's ok, stir the best you can.

    Can this be done with powder peanut butter like the jiffy one?

      I have never used PB2 as I don’t like it, but yes I think so as long as you use it in wet form

    Do these work out to two points each if you make 12 larger muffins?

    Just made them and they are delicious. My daughter is going to check and see if they are good for my grandson who has diabetics. I certainly hope so. It’s hard to find treats to make for him.
