These chocolate peanut butter muffins have a hint of coffee in them. They’re grain free and sugar free!

There are 2 topics I want to cover today.

#1: It’s been one week (please read with the tune of the Barenaked Ladies song in your head) since I’ve had Rita’s, a rainbow sprinkled vanilla cone and/or self-serve frozen yogurt. That, my friends, is a summer record over here and the reason for these muffins.

It was treat time.

#2: I’m about to lose my shit (what an expression right? Like how does someone actually go about doing that?) if I see one more blogger whore themselves out to big brands on twitter, instagram or facebook.

Did you bake something with Hershey’s kisses in it? Oh, how freakin’ original.

Why don’t you tweet Hershey’s up the wazoo hoping they’ll share your post and you’ll be like totally famous for a day. Knock, knock. Who’s there? Oh, a little thing called TRANSPARENCY.

The world sees right through you.

Maybe I should tweet Ghirardelli, Skippy and Bob’s Red Mill like woah today shoving this post in their face. “.@PBandSkippy makes the BEST Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins!” Apparently that’s the thing now.

Wouldn’t it be a hell of a lot more satisfying to know a brand (or anyone for that matter) shared your recipe because they actually genuinely liked it and not because you pretty much harassed them into it?

Be genuine, be original, work with brands when it fits, but good lord, please stop selling your soul to the blogging pageview devil.

It’s been one of those weeks where I want to delete every social media account I have and just cook in my kitchen, take photos and share them with you guys on here in a vacuum.

So thanks for entertaining that little rant…

Now for these muffins…

Um, yum. I pretty much adore chocolate, coffee and peanut butter more than my husband INDIVIDUALLY, so combining them is almost sinful.

ps- they’re grain free and sugar free. Boo-freakin’-yah!

Happy weekend. I’m going to spend it NOT attached to the computer. Join me?

  1. I love your rants! I love your photos! I agree with you how food bloggers are just becoming a little ridiculous with it! Some of the biggest food bloggers are not into social media and are not begging companies for products; people go to there blogs because of the food, content, and photos! I still have that tune stuck in my head as I am writing this :) ! I love the 90’s!

  2. LOVED the rant and love when people let loose! It is refreshing to know that other people feel the same way about certain situations. Oh well, what can you do? Enjoy a muffin, have a glass of wine, and have a great weekend! :)

  3. Hah! #2, yes!
    Also, I don’t know how you do make something so healthy look so good. These look awesome!

  4. I think PB & Banana are close to the best taste combination ever… except for if you add chocolate. And then I’m certain it’s the best taste combination ever :)

  5. These seriously sound incredible. What an amazing combination! I woulnd’t think they would all taste good together, but now I’m convinced! Love that they’re grain and sugar free, too. Have a fab weekend!

  6. Love the flavor combination. You pretty much can’t go wrong with chocolate and PB but then add coffee!!!

  7. You know, I am not that bothered by people sharing it with the big brands. It’s not necessarily something I would do myself but it is kinda the point of social media. It’s there to be used – just make damn sure your recipe isn’t junk before you tweet it to a big brand only to have them not retweet it, haha.

    These look super yummy! I have had issues in the past with flaxseed tasting…fishy…after being baked. Any tips?
