Peanut Butter Cadbury Mini Egg Muffins

You need these Peanut Butter Cadbury Mini Egg Muffins for breakfast! A fluffy peanut butter muffin is stuffed full of chopped Cadbury Mini Eggs for a punch of chocolate. These are the best breakfast yet!


I am so over daylight savings time, and it just started. I really, really don’t see the point.

All last week, I woke up at 5:30. Not too early, usually I’m at the computer by 6am. I just figured, stressful week, lots going on, getting ready for the time change.

This week? Now I’m waking up at 4:30. Last night? 3:30. And it’s not just me. Jordan’s been cranky. Tired. She woke me up from a dead sleep at 11pm last night because she couldn’t sleep.

{Sidebar: I know it’s my job as “mom” but really? Now we’re just both awake, kid. So, um, thanks.}

Anyway, I’m just plain tired. I keep trying to come up with funny stories for you. And my eyelids close.

So, let’s just let these muffins speak for themselves, mmkay?


After a long night of non-sleep I don’t want bran flakes with almond milk. I don’t want a banana green smoothie. I want comfort food. I want cinnamon rolls and scones and coffee cake.

And I want muffins. Peanut butter muffins. With chocolate.

But not just any chocolate. Cadbury’s Mini Eggs chocolate.

Oh, yeah.


I actually based these muffins off of my Fluffernutter Banana Bread recipe. But I left out the fluffer. And the bananas. So it’s a sock-it-to-you peanut butter muffin. Peanut buttery all the way. I subbed some of the fat with Greek yogurt, my new favorite baking bestie. It makes them moist, dense, and I consider them healthy. Peanut butter and Greek yogurt – tons of protein, right?

And, since Cadbury Mini Eggs practically sing to me in the stores {seriously, they taunt me with their amazingness and sing-songy voices} I cannot NOT buy them. Then I have a bag of crack in my cabinet that I eat one by one until my mouth hurts from the candy shell, my pants no longer fit, and I’m high on chocolate.

So I chopped them up and put them in the muffins. You know, to get rid of them. Because when you add candy to muffins it cancels out the calories. {Duh.}

I put more on top, ‘cuz, you know, it’s Easter and it’s cute.

If you don’t have Cadbury Mini Eggs you could use chocolate chips. Lots and lots of chocolate chips.



Good morning, new best friend. Come closer and I’ll give you a squeeze….

Peanut Butter Cadbury Mini Egg Muffins

Peanut Butter Cadbury Mini Egg Muffins


  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup fat-free Greek Yogurt (I used plain, but a flavor is fine too!)
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon milk (non-fat, 2%, or almond milk is fine)
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Cadbury Mini Eggs (the chocolate ones) coarsely chopped, plus more for topping (You can use chocolate chips or M&Ms if you don’t have the mini eggs)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line muffin pan with liners (about 16).
  2. Stir oil, yogurt, and peanut butter with a wooden spoon. Stir in both sugars.
  3. Add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, and baking powder and stir until combined.
  4. Add half the flour and half the milk and stir until just mixed. Add the rest of the flour and milk and stir until the batter just comes together. Stir in the chopped Cadbury eggs.
  5. Add about 3/4-1 cup of batter per muffin cup (I use an ice cream scoop for this step). They won’t rise much, so you can fill them almost full. Press 1 or 2 Cadbury eggs in the top of each muffin. Bake about 15-20 minutes, removing from oven when a toothpick inserted in the side of the muffin comes out clean.

  1. Are you kidding me? Permission to eat Cadbury PB eggs for breakfast? I love you.

  2. Peanut butter AND Cadbury minis?! You’re after my heart, Dorothy. I hate that I’m rearing this before work, with a rumbly tummy, and can’t do anything about it right now. They’re gonna happen soon.

  3. Janine - says:

    These sound delicious, Dorothy! I’ve been wanting to try more recipes with Greek yogurt. Between that and the peanut butter I think these would be a great filling breakfast (with a bonus sweet treat!).

  4. The fact that there’s PB, greek yog, and Cadbury eggs all packed into one is fabulous!

  5. oh. em. gee! I also have a cadbury mini egg addiction! I’ve got 2 bags I’ve been hiding with all my baking supplies, trying not to open and devour them! These muffins will be a perfect excuse to open one of those bags. My jeans do not thank you. But my tastebuds sure will.

  6. ok…. any excuse to have peanut butter and chocolate for breakfast is OK by me. Esp if cadbury is involved!!!!!!!!! :)

  7. DST sucks… I feel robbed of my additional hour of sleep… So I know what you mean about the crankiness :) These muffins on the other hand – best breakfast ever! Love the cracked mini egg!! Swoon!

  8. Cadbury Mini Eggs, where do I begin? I have an unconditional love for Cadbury Chocolate! Have frequented Cadbury World growing up and eaten countless extra large bags of the eggs! And yes I totally get rid of candy by baking with it because it’s not bad for you if you are eating in a baked good! ;) Ready for some muffins in my belly!

  9. Oh my goodness I love finding as many ways possible to combine chocolate and peanut butter! These muffins look amazing. I could even see this peanut butter muffin recipe sans the cadbury chocolate (you know, ONLY when it’s not Easter time because who doesn’t love these chocolate treats) and topped with sugar crumb topping. :)

  15. These look so much better than the whole grain cooked cereal that I had for breakfast today. I’ll make them soon because chocolate and PB just belong together.

  16. Mini eggs are my all time fave! I was so happy when they started selling them all year.

    This would be such a dangerous breakfast for me.

  17. Look at me commenting on one of your posts instead of just pinning it and crossing my fingers that you’ll still be my friend!! This: “Then I have a bag of crack in my cabinet that I eat one by one until my mouth hurts from the candy shell, my pants no longer fit, and I’m high on chocolate,” made me giggle the most ridiculous snorty giggle ever.

    And seriously? The time change?? Insanity. Gavin has peed in his bed approximately 734 times this week. I know that doesn’t seem related. But it is.

  19. These muffins are adorable. So festive for Easter, and every morning to wake up to! I’m sure it help with your sleeplessness, in some way. I know I’ll be super happy to wake up to these PB and mini chocolate eggs muffins as breakfast. I love the little egg hatching on top of the muffins after they’re baked. ;) Can’t wait to bake these for my kids. I know they’ll be really happy to have these for breakfast or after school snacks.

  20. I don’t need funny stories when I can gaze upon muffins such as these ;) I’m feeling you on the tired business. Bryce has become my night-time stalker. Every time I wake up, he’s standing next to my bed. I could close my eyes right now and sleep for like 2 days straight. That is, if anyone would let me :)

  21. Those look great! Love pb muffins! I put Reese’s Pieces in mine. I have to confess I’m 23 and if I can’t sleep, I sometimes still wake my mom. There was a particularly rough night this past week where I know she just wanted to go back to sleep.

  23. If I didn’t love you and your blog before, I sure do now! Cadbury Eggs are my favorite part of Easter, throw them in a muffin and I’m sold. Your pictures always make me so hungry! I’m sitting here with my cup of coffee, and I think one of these muffins would be the perfect breakfast to accompany it (yes, I’m eating breakfast at noon). Where do you live? If it is within a 100 mile radius I may have to start paying you to ship me some of your goodies! lol

  24. Daylight savings has been a nightmare for me as well. I can’t manage to fall asleep until 2 am. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea. These muffins though are the sugar high in the morning I need to keep the crankiness at bay.

  31. Thanks so much for this! We got a new mixer so I’m looking for recipes ;)
    Do you know if these will still work without the peanut butter? I’m not allergic to it, I’m just not a huge fan. Shocking, I know!

  32. Elizabeth says:

    Have stumbled across this recipe after my mother asked me to bring some fun, yummy muffins for Easter brunch this weekend. I am wondering if I wanted to make them with banana in them as well do you think any other quantities of ingredients would change?
