Peanut Butter Cupcakes

I made these for a coworker after he completed a 30 day fast.
I used a chocolate buttercream frosting (recipe to follow), but they taste just like a soft PB cookie so I imagine they would be delicious with any kind of frosting!

3C all-purpose flour
1.5 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4C butter, softened
1 3/4C creamy peanut butter (I use Peter Pan)
1 3/4C sugar
3 eggs
1C plain Greek yogurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4C skim milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In mixer (or bowl if you don't have a KitchenAid) cream butter, peanut butter, and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add baking soda and baking powder.
  4. Add milk.
  5. Add eggs & vanilla.
  6. Add flour.
  7. Add Greek yogurt.
  8. Bake ~18 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool & frost.
  10. Enjoy!

  1. these were SO GOOD!! I added about a cup and a half of dark chocolate chips so i wouldn't have to frost them, and they turned into some fabulous muffins!
