Moist Coconut Peanut Butter Muffins

5 Jun

I absolutely love peanut butter. I attribute this love to my late grandfather who loved it as well. He and my grandmother always had a magnet on their fridge that said, “Reach for the peanut butter instead!” Peanut butter contains calcium, fiber, iron, potassium, protein and vitamin E. Peanut butter is delicious on so many things such as apples, french toast, pancakes, waffles, noodles, etc. The combination, however, of coconut and peanut butter, for me, is a match made in heaven. These muffins are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Moist Coconut Peanut Butter Muffins

Peanut Butter Coconut Muffins
Yields 12 muffins

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup peanut butter
1-1/2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons coconut oil (canola or peanut oil may also be used)

Preheat oven to 400º F. Grease muffin pan or line with baking cups.

In a medium bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a separate large bowl, mix together peanut butter, sugar, coconut milk and oil until thoroughly combined. Gradually add flour mixture, and mix just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each 2/3 full. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

    I made these yesterday. They’re really good, but not as muffiny as I like.

    I also used a whole 14 fl. oz. (414 mL) can of coconut milk, which was a smidge more than 1½ cups.

    And I ended up with 15 muffins instead of 12.

    I made these this afternoon. They are delicious. Thanks for the recipe. I’m tempted to include some chocolate chips next time round to complete the triple whammy of things I really like!
