Brownie Cup With Mini Peanut Butter Cups Recipe

1/2 cup butter or 1 stick softened

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 eggs

3/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or 1/4 cup almond meal and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

container of mini peanut butter cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease 8 ramekins or a 12 cup muffin pan.  Mix the butter, yogurt and sugar.  Add vanilla and egg.  In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients and slowly pour into the mixer to form a batter.  Remove the beater and stir in 1 cup of mini peanut butter cups.  Pour into each ramekin halfway and place a few mini peanut butter cups on top.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the top bounces back.  Serves 8 or 12.
