Protein Packed Peanut Butter and Chocolate Breakfast Muffins

Most mornings we try and have a sit down breakfast before starting our day and heading off to school.

However, some mornings it’s more like, grab something and lets go! On those days, it’s usually a breakfast muffin, smoothie or other quick breakfast. However, I still like those quick breakfasts to be healthy, filling and of course tasty. Often the one element that is missing is protein, which I think is really important to have with each meal.

Our go-to for adding protein is usually Kraft peanut butter. It’s quick, it can be used so many different ways and let’s face it, it’s delicious. and makes everything better. It’s not just a spread, it’s an upgrade.So you can imagine how excited I was when I found that Kraft has Peanut Butter with Honey and Chocolate Peanut Butter!

2. In another bowl, add the Kraft Peanut Butter with Honey, greek yogurt, milk, egg and vanilla. Use a whisk to mix it all together. It might take a couple of minutes to get everything to combine well.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together with a wooden spatula.  At this point, mix in the chocolate chunks if you are using them.

4. Grab you muffin trays and grease them or use liners. If you use liners, you may need to grease them too. (I used the silicone muffin tins and they came out perfectly without sticking.) Fill each one about 3/4  full.

5. Put them in a 375 degree preheated over and bake for 15-18 minutes. Use a toothpick or skewer to see if they are cooked. If it comes out clean, the muffins are ready! This recipe will give you 12-15 large breakfast muffins.

  1. These look delicious, and it’s wonderful that the kids helped make them. My son loves to cook, so I’m going to grab a jar of that peanut butter when I do my grocery shopping this week. Can’t wait to try this recipe with him!
