Peanut Choc-Chip Muffins

Although I whole-heartedly believe in a balanced lifestyle and all the perfectly balanced meals that come with that, I believe that a big part of every balanced lifestyle should be a few meals that would be suitable for a detox, and some suitable for a re-tox. Both of which are fine in a balanced scheme of things along with what I hope is your life of mainly balanced meals.

However, this is the re-tox.

Peanut Choc-Chip Muffins
(For Casey)

Recipe from 'The Essential Vegetarian CookBook' - Murdoch Books

2 cups (250g) self-raising flour
1/3 cup (80g) raw sugar
1 1/2 (240g) dark choc bits
1 egg
1 cup (250g) crunchy peanut butter
2 tablespoons strawberry jam (I used raspberry)
60g butter, melted
1 cup (250ml) milk
Icing sugar for dusting (I ignored this)

Preheat oven to moderate 180c
Brush a 12 hike standard muffin tin with melted butter or oil (I sprayed olive oil)
Sift flour into large bowl
Add sugar and choc bits; make a well in the centre
Add combined egg, peanut butter, jam, butter and milk
Stir until just combined (do not over beat)
Spoon evenly into muffin cups
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean
Loosen the muffins in the pan and leave for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack
When cool, dust with icing sugar (I found them sweet enough)


Stay well,
