Peanut butter chocolate chip muffins

 This past Christmas my sisters gave me baking stuff since I have been trying to bake more. So far I've put the measuring cups and mixer to good use but I haven't had a chance to use my mini muffin tin. I decided that my baking this weekend would have to include using it, so I made some chocolate chip muffins with peanut butter. I found the recipe here.

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 1/4 cup oil 
  • 1 3/4 cup flour 
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar 
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Mix the milk, peanut butter, oil, egg and vanilla together.

 Next add the dry ingredients (the original recipe calls for mixing the dry ingredients and the wet separately but mine came out fine without mixing the dry ingredients together first)

 After it is all mixed together add in the chocolate chips and stir.

 Lightly grease the mini muffin tin and drop the batter in. The originally recipe says it will make 24 muffins but I was able to make . I found out why after these came out of the oven - mine didn't rise very much. The tins need to be filled to the very top. They still tasted great though!
