Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil or canola
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter , I do not recommend natural
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line a regular-sized muffin pan with muffin papers (you'll end up with 12-14 muffins total).
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl beat together the oil, brown sugar, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until smooth. 
  • Turn the mixer down to low speed and mix in the milk and sour cream.
  • Turn off the mixer and fold in the of the flour mixture, followed by the chocolate chips. 
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each to the top of the paper (you'll end up with 12-14 muffins total).
  • Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean (except for the melted chocolate chips). 

Notes

*Measuring the flour incorrectly can result in dry muffins. Whisk the flour carefully, then spoon into a dry measuring cup and level off the top. Or weigh using a kitchen scale. 1 cup of flour is 125grams.
**Muffins are best enjoyed the same day that they're made. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
