Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip Oat Muffins

Our Muffin recipes are one of the most popular recipes on the CFC website!

So the people have spoken. Give us more muffin recipes! 🙌

These muffins have a special gooey treat in the center – so if you’re a PB + Chocolate fan, then you’re going to want to run to the kitchen and make these immediately!

I ABSOLUTELY love to bake simple muffin recipes at home for my family because I know what goes into them and I really feel good knowing that each ingredient has been carefully selected by ME.

This is a budget-friendly recipe to help bulk up your family meals anytime you want to stretch your trips to the store. It’s a quick and easy recipe with impressive results too!

➡️When shopping for ingredients:

Look for a higher percentage of cacao for the chocolate chips, and always read the ingredients.

There are always lots of questions about chocolate brands – I like to visit the specialty (nicer) chocolate section at the stores and find a really high quality, (often organic) dark chocolate bar on SALE – so I’m often trying something different because the sales dictate my purchase.

🍫A high-quality dark chocolate bar works great too! I’ll often find a beautiful organic dark chocolate bar on sale, then chop it up to use for things like this.

I like to buy the highest quality I can find when it’s on SALE! I’m always keeping an eye out for a good deal and will often stock up when a high-quality product is on special.

Use any dark chocolate chips of your choice: the higher cacao percentage = more health benefits.

❤️🥜 ❤️🥜Who LOVES Peanut Butter!? 🙋‍♀️

Many Peanut Butter Varieties that are marked as “healthy” actually contain added sugars and hydrogenated oils. Be sure to always read the ingredients.

We sometimes “grind” our own nut butters at the grocery markets that offer this service.

This way, we know that it’s JUST Peanuts and maybe a touch of sea salt in our nut butters.


🍯 The sweetness factor is such a PERSONAL preference, so please consider this when adding in the honey or maple syrup. Depending on your taste, you may want a bit more or less.

Try out some of our other favorite muffins, too:

12 servings


  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups milk of choice
  • ½ cup creamy natural peanut butter, divided
  • 2 large eggs, room temp, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup mini dark chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f. and lightly spray a 12-cup regular muffin tin with cooking oil spray.

In a large bowl, mash the banana. Add in the oats, milk, 1/4 cup of peanut butter, eggs, honey baking powder and vanilla.

Stir well to combine, then add about 2 spoonfuls of batter to each of your prepared muffin cups.

Divide the remaining 1/4 cup of peanut butter, by adding a teaspoon to each muffin. Sprinkle in half of your chocolate chips.

Cover the peanut butter with the remaining batter and top with the remaining chocolate chips.

Bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow the muffins to cool before serving.
