If you haven’t noticed, or if you’re new to this blog, I have a thing for the combination of peanut butter, chocolate, and oats. I like the combination in cookies, bars, scones, cheesecake, etc.
My newest way to enjoy this combination? In muffins!
The best part? These peanut butter chocolate chip oat muffins don’t taste like the healthy muffins that they are.
Wheat flour, oats, yogurt, honey, and peanut butter make up these tasty muffins (so you can really enjoy them!).
A bit of brown sugar is added to give them more of a decadent taste, but feel free to leave it out to keep them healthier. Just enough chocolate chips are stirred in to make these muffins irresistible.
Eat a couple for breakfast and grab a few on the way out the door for an afternoon pick me up!

Your muffins look beautiful - almost like they weren't baked. I made these and mine looked totally different. They were not cooked at 20 minutes. Toothpick inserted as not clean. So, I did 5 minutes more. It saddens me to say, it didn't have much of a peanut butter taste either.
