Peanut butter stuffed muffins … that is all 👌 Peanut butter and chocolate together are my favourite!
These turned out quite dense but just delicious!
Here is the recipe.
PB protein center:
•¾ cup vanilla protein (Vega used)
•¾ cup creamy peanut butter
•2 Tbsp coco oil, at room temperature
•½ tsp vanilla extract
•1⅔ cups organic whole wheat flour
•¾ cup organic cocoa powder
•1 Tbsp baking powder
•1 tsp cinnamon
•1 cup plain 0% greek yogurt
•½ cup + 2 Tbsp almond milk
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•½ cup scant coco oil, at room temperature
•½ cup xylitol
•½ cup coconut sugar
•2 large eggs
•250g cream cheese, at room temperature
•½ cup creamy peanut butter
•½ cup vanilla protein
•½ cup plain 0% greek yogurt
•1-2 Tbsp maple syrup (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°. Line 22 cupcake tins with a double layer of paper liners.
Combine protein, peanut butter, coco oil and vanilla in bowl. Beat on medium speed until well combined and mixture holds together. Roll into 22 balls, place on parchment lined baking sheet and chill in freezer while you make batter (15-20 minutes).
Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl with whisk. In a liquid measuring cup, stir together greek yogurt, milk and vanilla. In large bowl, beat coco oil and sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down bowl as needed. Add greek yogurt mixture to sugar mixture and combine. Create well in dry ingredients and add wet, with mixer on low speed or by hand mix just until incorporated. Spoon a tablespoon or two of batter into liners. Place one chilled ball of peanut butter filling into each cupcake well and top with remaining batter. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5-10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and cool completely before frosting.
Beat together cream cheese, peanut butter, protein powder and greek yogurt until smooth. Pipe frosting onto cooled muffins and eat! Add sprinkles If desired.
Recipe notes: If you don’t want to use protein, replace with powdered sugar. Xylitol can be replaced with any granulated sugar as well.
