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. Holy moly guacamole! I am so down it’s insane.

  2. Do these have a strong banana flavor? While I love bananas (and the banana pb combo), I’m not a fan of banana bread.

    Thanks. They look really good though!

  3. Thanks. I might still try it. I wonder how a baked apple would be…baked so it’s soft, but not quite apple sauce. Might add too much moisture.

    • I’m not sure a baked apple would work. Banana is able to transform to be almost cake-like, but I haven’t had any similar results with apples.
