Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins



Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

Go out to your kitchen and grab a jar of peanut butter and a jar of jam, then make these muffins.  Wait.  Read this post and then go make the muffins.

It’s no secret that I love peanut butter.  These muffins have a deep peanut butter flavor, like peanut butter cookies.  The fruity jam in the center compliments perfectly.  No wonder PB&J is a classic combo.

Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

peanut butter and jelly muffins ingr

  • 1-3/4 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • jam or jelly, any flavor

Mix the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.  In a mixer bowl, beat together the milk, peanut butter, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla.  Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a spoon. (I needed to add another splash of milk at this point, because the batter was too dry and stiff.)

Grease a muffin tin.  Put a tablespoon or two of the batter into each cup.  Add a teaspoon of jam to the top.  Put more batter over the jam to cover it.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing.

Here’s a picture of the muffins before I put them in the oven.  Some have already been covered with the extra batter and some are waiting their turn to be covered.
