These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins are my favorite breakfast, possibly ever. They’re my treat on the weekends instead of my normal breakfast jump start. They’re warm and scrumptious and easy to make. With only healthy coconut sugar they’re gluten free, dairy free and have a good dash of protein thanks to the peanut butter. So there’s no guilt starting off your day with delicious muffins and a hint of chocolate.

In fact, only the chocolate chips tip these muffins to almost, slightly, a little bit unhealthy. But if you really want to, you can use organic chocolate chips with a non-sugar sweetener. Just don’t substitute dark chocolate chips (anything over 60%). I tried that once and the balance of sweetness and dark chocolate doesn’t work so well.
