Guest Feature: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins With A Twist

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins With A Twist

Once upon a time, I had young children who were picky about eating their veggies. My firstborn, loved everything, but around the age of 2, started turning her nose up at things she used to devour. My little guy was wanting real people food before he had teeth, but preferred steak to anything with a tinge of green.

This mom on a mission was trying to find ways to get some kind of vegetables into her kids besides throwing some peas into mac and cheese (which the kids promptly picked out anyway). And that is when I saw Jessica Seinfeld on tv, talking about her book, Deceptively Delicious. I fell in love. I was still pureeing homemade baby food for my little guy, so I already had a supply of stuff to mix in. Bonus– saved us money and the kids were have treats that were not totally rotten.

Fast forward to ages 8 and 10–they eat and love veggies now, but this particular recipe is still loved and asked for. I always get more than 12 from a batch, but maybe I’m just stingy with the batter. I also add chocolate chips because it will ensure my kids will eat them. I also use a whole egg because I am too lazy to separate eggs.
