I love these Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Mini Muffins. My kids think they are awesome especially when I pack them for their school lunches.

These Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Mini Muffin recipe was a recipe I used to make from a long time ago. I recently run into the recipe by accident while cleaning my desk so I figured I make it and post it so that I wouldn’t lose it again. I love mini muffins even though I don’t get to make them often. They are really convenient to eat since they are almost bite size, and perfect for my son :-).

This time around, for the Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Mini Muffins, I half the batter and added cocoa powder to it to get the chocolate looking effect of some of the muffins, great move I must add! I love the two different mini muffin tones and they look more fun, especially for my kids.

These will freeze well so if you like you can place half of them in the freezer and have as you go for some other days.

Anyhow, these, again, are very easy to make. If you don’t have a mini muffin pan just used a regular muffin pan, the result will be equally good.
