Marble Streusel Muffins

It's Muffin Monday again!  As always, visit Baker Street 29 for the original recipe!

Below is my version:

2 c. Gluten-free AP flour
2 tsp xanthan gum
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. peanut butter
2 Tbsp. milk
2 eggs
3/4 c. water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with wrappers. Combine flour, xanthan gum, sugar, soda, and salt. In another bowl, cream together peanut butter and cream cheese, then beat in egg and milk. Take a 1/2 c. flour mixture and beat into peanut butter mixture.

Add cocoa to remaining flour mixture. In another bowl, beat together second egg, oil, water, and vanilla. Stir into cocoa mixture.

Fill muffin cups with both batters. (About 2/3 chocolate and 1/3 peanut butter).

Make streusel:

Stir together 1 Tbsp butter and 1 Tbsp peanut butter. Beat in 1/4 c. sugar and 1/3 c. GF AP flour until crumbly.

Sprinkle cupcakes with streusel and bake for 20 minutes.

  1. YAY! for gluten free muffins! Thanks for sharing the recipe Holly! DId your girls like them?

  2. They did! I think I need practice with streusels, though. They tend to come out a little dry in the GF version. :-D Just means I'll have to make another batch to tweak, right?

  3. You're certainly a great resource for GF recipes! Wonderful how you can always adapt everything. Great looking muffins, Holly! Have a great week!

  4. Love the flavour combination of chocolate and peanut butter with this recipe. Must have been amazing!
