Guest Blogger: Anna shares a Delicious Muffin Recipe

As a Christian wife and mother, it is my desire to inspire and encourage you with the richness of God’s many blessings! I have always loved to write, and on my blog, LifeBellissima.com, I enjoy sharing a variety of topics that are near and dear to my heart — family life, homeschooling, organic food/recipes (which of course includes chocolate!) and our many new adventures in the country with a tabby cat, several rabbits and seven Rhode Island Red hens!

Ahh, muffins. For me, they rank right up there with smoothies for breakfast or a tasty treat!

When I was a young girl, my mom would make toast for me with butter, peanut butter and a sweet swirl of honey on top — it’s still one of my (and my mom’s) favorite ways to dress up toast. Peanut butter and honey go very well together, but what could make a muffin even better?

Add a little chocolate!

I hope you will enjoy these moist and flavorful muffins! They pair well with tea, coffee, hot chocolate or a tall glass of milk. Mmm!

Peanut Butter & Honey – Chocolate Chip Muffins


(recipe adapted from chocolatechocolateandmore.com)

*I prefer to use all organic ingredients

2 cups flour

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup vanilla almond milk

2 eggs

3/4 cup smooth peanut butter

2/3 cup raw honey

1/3 cup coconut oil, softened 

3/4 to 1 cup chocolate chips



-Preheat oven to 375 degrees

-With a hand mixer, stand mixer or by hand, gently combine eggs, peanut butter, honey and coconut oil until smooth.

-Alternate flour, salt and baking powder with vanilla almond milk — mixing gently.

-By hand, fold in the chocolate chips. (add a few extra if you like ;) )

-In a muffin tin with liners, use a cookie scooper to fill each liner approximately 2/3 full.

-Bake for approximately 12-14 minutes, or until toothpick comes out of the center clean.

Enjoy!
