eggless chocolate peanut butter oatmeal muffins

haaa...amek ko! what a mouthful to say...and eat.

I went online in search for another eggless recipe for class and found this. i actually follow madhuram's eggless cooking blog. so, naturally i wanted to give this recipe a go, especially

since i had everything at home for this. jadi, why not? kan?

before I go on, let me just say that i did not go all vegan for this recipe. i just followed the eggless bit of it. but if you guys are interested in going all vegan, you guys can click here.
okay, you guys ready for the recipe?
you will need:
110g (1 cup) all purpose flour
60g (⅔ cup) quick cooking oats
40g (⅓ cup) cocoa powder
170g (¾ cup) sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
130g (½ cup) peanut butter*

*i used crunchy peanut butter, because that was all i had. :-p

the how to:
1)  preheat the oven to 200°C.

2)  in a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the peanut butter in milk. stir constantly.  once the peanut butter has melted, take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool.

3)  while waiting for peanut butter mixture to cool, line your muffin tin with liners.

4)  in a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients of flour, oats, cocoa powder, sugar and baking powder.

5)  once the peanut butter mixture is cool, combine the mixture with the dry ingredients and stir til just combined.

6)  spoon the batter into the muffin tin. **

7)  bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on your oven temperature.

** i used a 5cm (2") ice cream scoop and got 16 muffins.

taste wise, these muffins have a really balanced taste. it wasn't too sweet neither was it bland.  one thing i need to tell you guys that these muffins had a bit of a bite to them. mrG told me they were chewy...maybe because of the quick cooking oats. 
if you guys are looking for a more 'adult' kind of muffins, then this is the recipe for you.
luck luck!!
