Peanut Butter Pretzel Blondie Muffins


A peanut butter blondie in muffin form that gives you sweet and salty all in one bite also you get the crispy part of a brownie all around.
I was inspired to make these blondies by a famous chocolate bar that's a caramelized 'gold bar' that has peanuts and pretzels. 
It has an explosion of flavor when you bite into because of the sweet and saltiness.Which happens to be my favorite flavor combinations.

These are a peanut butter blondie with honey roasted peanuts, salty pretzels and a touch of white chocolate in a jumbo size to share or eat all by yourself, I won't tell anyone, an explosion of sweet and salty flavors. 
If you are having a bad day or week make these, you can smash things like the peanuts and pretzels plus you get a reward afterwards.

  10. I always prefer blondies over brownies because I am not overly fond of chocolate, but I have never heard (or thought) of putting pretzels in them, but I love me some salty sweet.

    Lovely post! x

  13. These look absolutely delicious! What really cought my attention was that they are peanut butter. I have a huge peanut butter obsession. I actually use to melt peanut butter to pour on my banana nut mufins. I've even dipped pretzels in it. This seems like the equivalent of all 3 in one yummy snack. I'm definitely going to try it!
