Peanut Butter Carob Chip Muffins!

Sunday, April 10, 2011

These muffins are a great treat for when you can't have sugar or dairy! They are also a great treat for tricking the tofu haters in your life! Just let them enjoy their muffin in ignorance while you cackle about your trickery in the corner. :) Not like I have done that before or anything...
Peanut Butter Carob Chip Muffins
Recipe adapted from The Nest

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 package soft silken tofu
1/2 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons coconut milk (You could totally use cow's milk)
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup carob chips (or chocolate chips)

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 12 muffin cups with liners or spray with cooking spray.

Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. In a blender, combine the maple syrup, tofu, peanut butter, milk, and vanilla and process until smooth. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until blended. Stir in the carob chips.

Transfer the batter into the prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out dry.
