Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Total Time:
30 min
15 min
15 min

24 servings


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line mini muffin tins with paper cups.

In a mixer with a whip attachment, mix together the peanut butter, egg, and sugars until smooth. Add milk in 3 additions, mixing well each time.

Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt together and add to the peanut butter mixture. Mix on low just until the flour disappears. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon into muffin cups filling 3/4 full (a small ice cream scoop works well for this) and bake until puffed up and firm on top, about 10 to 15 minutes. Cool in the pan.

Some people have allergies to peanuts, and if serving to guests, please make them aware of the inclusion of this peanut product.

    You are my best friend Lol! I dropped my batter on the floor and found this recipe on here and I had a whole new batch in 10 min thankgod.
    Easy recipe waiting for them to come out of the oven!
    I baked them for exactly 10 minutes and they came out perfectly! Soft in the center, which is just the way I like it. However I did make them with mini m&m's instead of mini chocolate chips, but still added the same amount, 1/2 cup. For my taste this wasn't quite enough chocolate, so next time I'll probably up it to 3/4 - 1 cup of mini m&m's, but this recipe was really good, and will become one of my go-to recipes for taking cookies anywhere.
    i love it
    This is generally a great recipe. I made the muffins in regular size tins. Filled to the top, that makes a dozen large muffins. The first time I made them the muffins were a bit dry and not as flavorful as I'd like. So, I added about 1 tablespoons of oil and 1 teaspoon of salt to the peanut butter mixture. I also added a couple of teaspoons of cinnamon to the flour mixture. Baked for exactly 20 minutes in my gas oven. Perfect! Also, if you cut em open and add a little butter, its even better.
    Great recipe! Easy to follow and great results.... YUM!
    Yes, this recipe sounds tasty. Yes, the batter is delicious. But the muffins themselves leave much to be desired. Forget creamy, peanut butter goodness, and think about how it feels to swallow when peanut butter is stuck to the roof of your mouth. Ick. I even tried adding vanilla, as one fellow user suggested, and added a bit more salt. Even so, the muffins were pretty bland.

    That said, my coworkers did eat all 30 of them. However, I think this has more to do with their deprivation of home-baked goods, than the quality of these muffins.
    Not sure what it was, but even when I tasted the was missing something. However it baked well and was moist.
    I normally love Gale Gand's recipes, so when the results came out awful the first time around, I made the recipe again, thinking "surely I had made some mistake." Nope, it really is a poor recipe. The muffins don't taste sweet,not even a little, and the peanut butter almost makes it more bland, and hard to swallow. Sorry Gale!
    I did not like these. They weren't terrible, but they definitely aren't worth the calories or the ingredients. The batter had the consistency of glue, and the finished product was pretty flavorless. I will not make these again.
    Made these today and they were completely tasteless. I even added 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, based on another review.

    What a waste of time and ingredients!
    Batter was much better than the result
    These muffins were ok...they were moist and were nice and puffy, but flavorwise, something was missing. You can definitely taste the peanutbutter, but they needed something else to perk them up. Not sure what. Maybe some vanilla?
    These muffins were so good, everyone at my husbands office loved them. And they are easy to make. They were just a little bit dry, but overall they were very good.
    These muffins are a bit overpowered by the peanut butter. I added more chips and still wasn't satisfied with the flavor. They're also a little dry.

    Maybe my mini-muffin tin is really small, but this recipe made 48 muffins, not 24.
    it is soooooooo good
    This recipe was easy and fun to make with my kids. The crunchy peanuts give good texture and the chocolate chips add sweetness. Enjoy!
