1 cup (4 ounces) whole barley flour
1/2 cup (2 ounces) white whole wheat flour
1/2 cup (2 ⅛ ounces) unbleached bread flour
3/4 cup (2 ¼ ounces) unsweetened Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
1/4 cup (1 ¼ ounces) malted milk powder
1 cup (7 ½ ounces) packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
1 & 1/4 cups (10 ounces) buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (6 ounces) peanut butter chips
6 Tablespoons (2 ¾ ounces) packed light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons (⅝ ounce) malted milk powder
2 Tablespoons (⅜ ounce) unsweetened Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 cup (2 ounces) plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
To Make Batter:
Whisk together the flours, cocoa, malted milk powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the butter, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until the batter is evenly moistened. Stir in the peanut butter chips. Scoop batter by 1/2 cupfuls into a lightly greased 12-muffin tin.
Bake in a preheated 375F degree oven 23-25 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn muffins onto a rack to finish cooling.
To Make The Glaze:
Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat and drizzle over the tops of the cooled muffins.
