Another day another mug muffin. Today was kind of a chocolate peanut butter day. It's only fitting that it's a chocolate peanut butter night too.
I think our dog (Prada) has a super sensory sniffer. She seems to know the minute I pull the peanut butter jar out of the cupboard...even BEFORE I open it. Tonight is no different. I set the jar on the counter and heard her jump off the couch and come running to the kitchen. Then she stands at my feet and whines - usually until I break down and give her a scoop in her Kong as a treat. I guess we have no one to blame but ourselves for her persistent pleading for peanut butter. But really, can you blame her. For a treat, my hubby will just get a spoon full of peanut butter and eat it like that. I'm surprised they weren't both in the kitchen begging for peanut butter.
I added 2 Tbsp of peanut butter after the cocoa powder was mixed in good. The batter was still pretty stiff. At this point I probably should have added another Tbsp of coconut oil to get a little better consistency - tip for next time. I'm thinking for every extra Tbsp you add of dry ingredients you should add a Tbsp of coconut oil. I'll certainly give this a try with my next mug muffin.
This one's a keeper too - just with an extra Tbsp of oil.
