Skinny Mini Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Muffins || Sweet Treats and More

These cute little muffins are kind of amazing!  You’ll never know they’re made with better-for-you-ingredients (that’s what mean by skinny)  They’re sweetened with honey, all-natural peanut butter, and almond milk.  Almond milk by itself is too sweet for me to drink, but it’s perfect in these muffins because it adds a little more sweetness and keeps the muffins…dare I say it…moist!  They just have a great texture! Plus the almond milk has fewer calories and sugar than regular milk does so I’m saving us a few extra calories there. 

Made up (of course) by the peanut butter and dark chocolate chips. But hey, it’s worth something!

And oh, the dark chocolate chips.

Each muffin is studded with dark chocolate chips that melt in your mouth with each bite.   It simply makes them irresistible.  I ate my way through most of them in a day.  Five for breakfast, two for snack, and three after dinner.  Or something like that.  I blame the dark chocolate and the miniature size of the muffins.  

My husband, who has better self-control than anyone on the planet (it’s actually annoying) only had a bite.  A bite of a mini muffin? There’s only two bites to these babies.  But that one bite got these a thumbs up, so I’ll take it.  

And I’ll be just fine eating the entire two dozen (minus one bite) by myself.

    Yum thanks for sharing. We make similar ones but use protein powder in substitute for the honey (or when it calls for sugar) then add a tish more milk if its too dry of a mix.

    Where do you find mini dark chocolate chips? I’ve only seen them in semi-sweet. Thanks!

      They don’t have to be mini if you can’t find them!

    These look soooo good. Also, I love mini muffins. They have less calories, right? So I can eat 1000…right?

  6. I would have a hard time not eating an entire batch by myself! Love dark chocolate and peanut butter!

  7. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life January 25, 2014

    There is no way I could only eat one bite of these! The entire batch would be gone before I even got up. LOL! They sound amazing!!!

  8. Aimee @ ShugarySweets January 25, 2014

    Oh Em Gee! So delicious! I didn’t have a mini muffin tray so I used a tray for 12 regular sized muffins.
