Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

28 May

There’s quite possibly nothing more classic than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  It’s the sandwich each of my boys packed into their very first school lunch boxes.  Peanut butter is one of the few things I would eat as a picky kid.  It’s the thing I eat still eat by the spoonful today.

Peanut Butter Jelly Muffins

Peanut butter is my superfood.  Everyone knows it’s a lunch favorite.  Most of us know it makes to-die-for desserts.  As in ooey gooey peanut butter brownie cups.  And now, peanut butter has become one of my breakfast addictions.

The boys and I made these on a rainy spring morning.  My little guy took a bite and exclaimed, “Mmm!  These taste like peanut butter!”  My guys were extra spoiled because I even let them scrape the jar clean at the end. 🙂

These peanut butter and jelly muffins are a major breakfast treat.  Loaded with protein and real fruit preserves, they pack a nutritional punch to start your day with.

These peanut butter and jelly muffins are remarkably hearty and delish.  It’s a super satisfying breakfast on the go, as Hubby will attest to.  These are not dainty; rather, they are dense and moist.  Just the way you’d expect peanut butter muffins to be.  The fruit preserves are wonderfully sweet and flavorful in the muffins.  I use real preserves rather than jelly, but jelly sounds better for a title.

If you love big peanutty flavor, you’ll enjoy this one.  Happy baking!

PEANUT BUTTER and JELLY MUFFINS (12 large muffins)

INGREDIENTS
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
1 cup chunky peanut butter
2 TB cold, salted butter
2 large eggs, room temp
1 cup whole milk, sit out for 10-15 min
jar of fruit preserves or jelly
powder sugar for sprinkling

DIRECTIONS

Set oven to 350F and line muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Cut in the peanut butter and cold butter, using a pastry cutter, until entire mixture becomes well incorporated.  In a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk.  Stir egg/milk mixture into the flour mixture just until evenly moistened.  Fill lined muffin cups halfway.  Drop in about a tablespoon of fruit preserves/jelly over each muffin cup.  Fill rest of muffin cups to the top with the rest of the batter, smoothing the tops evenly.

Bake for about 23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with just a few tender crumbs attached.  Cool muffins completely.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar upon serving, if desired.
