These Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Muffins are a no-fuss, easy and delicious way to get a chocolate fix in the mornings! Not too sweet, perfectly moist and mouthwatering!
Preheat oven to 375. Grease your muffin pan and set aside.
To a large bowl, add the 3 ripe bananas and mash them with a fork until they have no lumps and are fully mushy. To this, add maple syrup, egg, and vegetable oil. Mix with a whisk until fully combined.
To the bowl, sift in the all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and pinch of salt. Mix in gently with a wooden spoon. Next, gently fold in the chocolate chips.
Add batter to fill up each muffin tin about halfway to 3/4's of the way full. To the batter, add about 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Using a butter knife, swirl it around.
Bake for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once done, Let them sit in the muffin tin for 3-5 minutes then gently remove them and let them cool on a cooling rack. Eat while warm with a schmear of butter or extra peanut butter! Enjoy.
I used a jumbo 6 muffin tin pan for this recipe - you can also use a 12 muffin tin.
For peanut butter, it's best to use a natural more "oily" peanut butter for this recipe :)
