Flourless Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins
I read a recipe post for flourless peanut butter muffins and immediately knew that I had to make it.
These muffins are super easy and super delicious. And you’d never guess that the batter contains no flour.
Peanut butter is magical. I’ve successfully made flourless peanut butter cookies before, but I never would have thought to try muffins.
Instead of regular peanut butter, I used chocolate peanut butter. I’ve had too many jars of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter sitting in my cupboards because of a subscription on Amazon I forgot to cancel. These came out so well that I plan on making a few more batches soon to gift to friends and conveniently get rid of the rest of my extra case of chocolate peanut butter.
The original genius recipe can be found on Averie Cooks. I made a few adjustments. I did a chocolate version, made them full size, and mixed everything in a bowl rather than a blender. I also upped the chocolate chips and reduced the vanilla.
- 1 medium overripe banana
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup chocolate peanut butter you can also use regular peanut butter. Make sure to use the store-bought and not natural/homemade ones
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F and line 6 muffin/cupcake tins with liners. Combine peanut butter, egg, honey, vanilla, baking soda and ripe banana into a large mixing bowl. Mix with a whisk until batter is smooth and banana completely blended in. Stir in chocolate chips.
Add batter to cupcake liners, about 3/4 full. Bake for about 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean and muffin tops are puffy. Muffins will initially be puffy but will likely collapse slightly after they cool.
