PB & J Muffins

PB & J Muffins / Busy Mom's Helper
Adapted from Edible Perspective

Do your kids love PB & J sandwiches? Mine DEVOUR them….it’s like an absolute favorite no matter how recently we’ve had it, or how often. I don’t mind them, but come on, there’s a limit to how many I can eat, and especially how many I can MAKE!

In my never-ending struggle to find creative, inexpensive and EASY lunches for the kids….that they ALL enjoy…I decided to try PB & J in a different form: MUFFINS. I found these WONDERFUL recipe from Edible Perspective, and just changed some for my own family’s preferences.

PB & J Muffins

Ingredients – Muffins
2 1/4 cup Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Eggs
2/3 cup Milk
1/2 cup Applesauce
6 tbsp. Honey
1/4 cup Butter, melted
3 tbsp. Peanut Butter, creamy
1 tbsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup Jelly/Jam

Ingredients – Crumble Topping
6 tbsp. Oats
3 tbsp. Sugar
3 tbsp. Flour
3 tbsp. Peanut Butter, creamy
1 tbsp. Butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin, or line with muffin liners. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix all of the dry muffin ingredients.

In a medium bowl, mix the Peanut Butter, Honey and Butter until smooth. Add the remaining muffin ingredients EXCEPT THE JELLY and mix until well combined.

Pour the butter mixture into the dry mixture and stir until just combined.

Pour enough batter into the muffin cups just to cover the bottom. Top with 1-2 tsp. Jelly, then cover with more batter until cups are 2/3 of the way full.

Make the crumble topping: In a small bowl, mix the Peanut Butter and melted Butter until smooth. Add the rest of the crumble ingredients and MUSH together with a fork until crumbly.

Sprinkle the crumble topping on top of the muffins. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean – keep in mind to stick it in the edge, as to avoid the jelly.
