Easy to make and yummy

These muffins were great--especially right out of the oven. The chocolate overwhelmed the peanut butter just a bit, though; next time I would use fewer chocolate chips.

Great Combination!

Chocolate and peanut butter...yummy! I used regular peanut butter and about 1 1/2 cups of chopped semi-sweet chocolate chips and chunks. The chocolate surprisingly added to the "moistness" of the muffin. The use of whole wheat flour also made us feel like we were eating healthier.

Yummy says it all!

I bake muffins every week and am always looking for new recipes. This muffin mixes just the right amount of peanut butter with chocolate for an incredible taste. I did cut back the chocolate chips to half as it seemed just too much chocolate, if that's possible! My kids absolutely loved these!

Surprising Muffin

All of us like this muffin. The peanut butter flavor is great, not too strong. Of course, anything with chocolate is good too. I've been trying to find good muffin recipes and this is one of the best I have found. The whole wheat is a great ingredient. It makes us feel like we are eating a little healthier, which is always a good thing. Well worth trying this easy recipe.

These muffins are very good. Chocolate and peanut butter whats not to love. I was glad to see a recipe using whole wheat flour as the doctor wants me to eat more whole wheat.

I like the whole wheat part and I used regular peanut butter and 1 and 1/2 cups of regular chocolate chips. Thats what I had on hand.
