DIY – Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffins

Ok, before you start running away trying to escape from all those calories and carbs : this is a very healthy version !ย ๐Ÿ’–

I didn’t use a recipe at all for this, I kind of wanted to do a microwaved ย chocolate mug cake at first, but I remembered I didn’t own a microwave. Then, I decided to make muffins with approximately the same ingredients, but I also remembered I didn’t have any eggs, so I replaced them with peanut butter !
I like to experiment things in the kitchen, and sometimes it worksย ๐Ÿ˜Š

This version is healthy as I said, because it’s low carb (0% sugar if you use Stevia), low fat, and it can even be vegan if you use a vegetableย milk, because there are no eggs in it !

So, here are the ingredients, for 12 muffins :

Muffins ingredients

  • All purpose flour – 130 g or 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 10g or 2 tbsp
  • Low-Fat cocoa powder – 20 g or 4 tbsp
  • Stevia – 80 g or 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp (I cant figure americanย units out correctly sorry)
  • Salt – 1/2 tbsp
  • Skimmed Milk (or almond, soy…) – 215 ml or a bit less than a cup (I guess)
  • Vanilla extract – 2 tbsp
  • Peanut butter – 2 tbsp

 

 

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together

This is pretty self explanatory, put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk it all to avoid lumps.

2. Mixย all the wet ingredients together

Start with the peanut butter and the vanilla extract, to dissolve a bit the peanut butter, so it gets mixed up better with the milk. When the milk is mixed with the peanut butter-vanilla mix, mix all the ingredients together in the same bowl.

 

3. Pour into the muffin holders and bake

Pour the mixture into the muffin holders (i added 2 of them to make them hold better, and bake for approximately 20 min at 175ยฐ (or at 356 Fahrenheit, I think). They are done when you stick a knife in the middle of a muffin and it gets out clean, without any trace of raw mix.

4. Sprinkle !

Take them out of the oven, and they’re done ! Sprinkle them with some icing sugar or sprinkles.
To make stevia icing sugar, just put some normal stevia into a blender or a food processorย 1 or 2 minutes, and then use it as regular icing sugar !

I hope you enjoyed this recipe ๐Ÿ˜Š
I’m sorry if you use american units but I find those so complicated to figure out according to mu own measurements.

And as I said these are 100%ย low sugar and low fat ! I like to bake these kind of healthy pastries because it means I can eat a lot of them without it being bad for my health ๐Ÿ˜€

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them in the commentsย !

See ya !ย โค๏ธ
