Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Muffins – these muffins are loaded with peanut butter chips and chocolate chips plus learn the secret to get the perfect muffin tops.
Holy heat! That’s all I can say, holy heat and humidity! I forgot what it’s like to step outside and start sweating, have your clothes stick to your body and just basically have difficulty breathing. You may think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not!
Enough exclamation marks for now. But yeah, it’s hot here friends, and it’s not the heat that bothers me so much as it is the humidity.
Anywho, let’s talk muffins. I don’t think I make enough muffins, which is interesting because it used to be my breakfast of choice, for many many years. Throughout my university years I used to have a blueberry muffin for breakfast every single morning. Then when I got a job, I’d stop by Tim Horton’s on my way to work and get a cup of coffee and a muffin. Then a few years later I graduated to muffin mixes and here I was thinking I was all that because I was making my own muffins from muffin mixes. I’m sorry, did you think I was always this great baker? No my dears, it took years and years of practice.
But muffins are pretty easy to make, wouldn’t you say so? The only trick to muffins is learning how to get the nice big dome on them. And I learned that the trick to that is make sure the batter is just a bit thicker and to actually fill those muffin cups and you’ll see they’ll grow nice and big. Also it helps to bake them at a higher temperature first for 5 minutes then lower the heat and bake them until done.
While blueberry muffins were my muffins of choice for the longest time, sometimes nothing beats chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. YUMMY! I love peanut butter chips, they’re my latest thing, but I won’t lie to you, these muffins will be a bit sweet, so you will need that cold glass of milk to go along with them, or a good cup of java.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but these muffins are pretty incredible, as far as muffins go. And look at that awesome dome, looking good aren’t they? Go make some, they’re super easy to make.
