Death By Chocolate Peanut Butter Healthy Heart Muffins

Sarah Mock

Death By Chocolate is one of Nuts About Granola's most popular seasonal granola. This vegan granola will satisfy your chocolate sweet tooth with its chunks of dark chocolate and clusters of baked chocolate granola. When you stop by the Shoppe and enjoy your chocolate strawberry delight SOHO parfait you will be enjoying Death By Chocolate granola on your parfait. 

But Death Chocolate is good in so much more than a parfait. How about mixing it in a chocolate muffin batter for the ultimate Death By Chocolate Peanut Butter Healthy Heart Muffins? The heart shape isn't nessisary but with Valentine's Day right around the corner we couldn't resist a chocolate shaped heart!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium/large ripe banana, peeled

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I recommend using Naturally Nutty)

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 3 tablespoons honey (Use local honey!)

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • pinch salt, optional and to taste

  • heaping 1/2 cup Death By Chocolate Granola + more for sprinkling muffin tops

In a food processor grind up 1/2 cup of the Death By Chocolate Granola. A rolling pin and zip top bag can be used if you don't have a food processor.

Grind the granola until it is a combination of fine powder and small pieces.

Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor.

Tip: if you banana is less than over ripe, process it first until smooth and then add the rest of the ingredients.

Blend until it comes together as a thick batter. No not over mix. This is a thick batter and might challenge your food processor.

In a zip top bag crush about 1/3 cup of Death By Chocolate granola. Use a rolling pin to crush it.

It is not necessary to crush it as finely as you did for the batter. This will be the topping.

Spay our silicone molds with non stick spray.

Fill the muffin molds 2/3 full with the batter.

Sprinkle the crushed granola on top and be sure to press it into place so it doesn't fall off as the muffins rise and bake.

Bat at 400F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Time will carry depending on the size of your muffins.

Apple, Raisin, Oatmeal Cookies

Apple, Raisin, Oatmeal cookies from nutsaboutgranola.com

We are well into cookie baking season but there is always room for more cookies. Right?!

One of my favorite cookies of all time is an oatmeal raisin cookie. Some people crave a chocolate chip cookie or a peanut butter blossom cookie but I have always been a fan of the oatmeal raisin cookie. I love the layers of textures and flavors.

Crunchy oats, chewy raisins, and a spice mixture that isn't found in other cookies. This year I am simplifying my oatmeal raisin cookie recipe by using a box of Nuts About Granola Original Granola Basics Box Mix and enhancing the cookies with the addition of chopped granny smith apple. 

Once these cookies are baked they will disappear faster than they were made!

Start by creaming the softened butter and the sugar. I use the paddle attachment on my mixer and beat it on high speed for about two minutes.Light and fluffy is what you are looking for.

Stir to combine but do not over mix. Stop when the cookies look like cookie dough.

Scoop out on cookie sheets. I line my cookie sheets with a silicone mat but you can use parchment paper. If you don't have either one of these pan spray works as well.

 

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
