I love peanut butter and chocolate so these sounded delicious, but they did not live up to my expectations. They were dry and the flavor was just so-so. I did not overcook them so that is not why they were dry; I baked mine at 325 degrees for 10-11 minutes and they tested done. (The recipe says to cook them at 350 for 15-20 minutes.) I do not think I will make these again.

I made these yesterday morning, and I thought they were just ok. I followed the recipe almost exactaly, the only change I made was to make regular sized muffins, and I had to bake them for 25 mins to get them done. The tase was pretty good, but they are just so dense.....maybe they would have been better bite sized. I probably won't try again to find out.
Thanks for posting, it's always nice to try a different recipe!

My family loves chocolate & peanut butter so I tried the PB chocolate chip muffins. I added extra chips, other than that I followed the recipe. The batter looked a little greasy. I think the combination of oil & peanut butter was a little too much. The texture was a little more like a cookie than muffin. I think I will try again but use a basic muffin recipe & substitute some peanut butter in place of butter. But, Thanks for the idea. I'm sure my family will enjoy them.
