Reeses muffins

Today I made muffins! Muffins with those yummy Reeses peanut butter cup cakes in! I got the recipe from a guest blog on Kelli’s blog, it was written by Pam from Omnomalicious. I adjusted the recipe as follows:


  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 200g plain flour
  • 5 tbsp granulated sweetener
  • 175ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g chocolate chips
  • 12 mini reeses peanut butter cup cakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Prepare a 12-hole muffin tray with paper cases. This is best done in advance so the batter doesn’t have to wait before being poured into the cases
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, then gently stir in the sweetener
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, vanilla extract, egg and the oil together. Make a well in the centre of the flour and slowly fold in the liquid. When all the liquid is added, beat well and add the chocolate chips.
  4. Spoon half the mixture into cases, and now place a reeses cake on top.
  5. Next spoon more muffin mixture on top of the reeses cakes to ‘seal them in’
  6. Cook in the hot oven for 20 – 25 minutes
  7. Cool the muffins on a wire rack

Thanks to both Kelli and Pam for the peanut butter idea!!! It is definitely moorish 




Currently You can buy reeses at Sainsburys and Waitrose for half price (just 29p)

I appreciate some people may be off put by the fact that the manufacturers use  genetically modified Sugar Beets, Corn and/or Soy Beans in these products. I am not.
