My son had the idea for these one fall Saturday morning after we had gone apple picking. They are delicious! Great for school lunches, too.

  • Mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in peanut butter and brown sugar. Remove from heat and add milk, egg, and vanilla extract. Add butter mixture to the flour mixture, mixing until just blended. Add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the batter seems dry.

  • Add apple and peanut butter chips, stirring gently to distribute. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use less salt if using salted peanut butter.

If you are unable to find peanut butter chips, increase peanut butter to 1 cup.

I followed the recipe exactly and these just did not turn out. They were way too dense and dry/crumbly tasting while also oily. The PB flavor was not as pronounced as I was hoping either. I make muffins every week for my kids to pack as school snacks. These were the first ones that I had to just throw out because nobody would eat them. Read More

Didn't have wheat flour or peanut butter chips, so only used white flour. Used close to 1 cup of peanut butter and 2 small apples chopped up finely. Pleased with the result, might go heavier on the peanut butter in the future. Read More
