PB & J Muffins!

A follow-up to my PB& J Cookies, this is a delicious protein packed whole-grain muffin.

I use Natural Peanut Butter – you know, the unsweetened kind.  These still taste sweet though, I just use my own sweeteners and then I know how sweet it is and that healthier sweeteners are used.   If you don’t like peanuts, try almond butter!

Remember to check out my Alternative Ingredients list (look above) if you are unfamiliar with some of the ingredients I have listed below.  For information on when to serve nuts to your baby go here

Peanut Butter & Jam Muffins

  • 1/2 C natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1/4 C butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 C sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 2 T agave nectar (or honey)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C milk (cow’s, soy, rice or almond)
  • 1 C whole spelt flour
  • 3/4 C light spelt flour
  • 1/4 C ground flax
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • jam
In a large bowl combine together peanut butter and butter and combine until they are smooth.  Add the salt, sucanat, agave nectar, egg and milk.  Combine well.
In a small bowl mix together flours, baking powder and ground flax.
Add the dry to the wet and combine until the flour has all been absorbed.
Grease a muffin tin or use paper liners.  Fill the cups half full of muffin mix.  Add a teaspoon of jam and then fill the rest of the muffin cup with muffin mix.  On top of each muffin put a teaspoon-sized dollop of jam.
Bake in a 375 deg. oven for 20 minutes.  You will know when they are done when the sides have browned and a knife inserted along the side of the muffin (not near the jam) comes out clean.  Don’t eat these too fast because the jam will be really hot!
About nuts: Please remember that peanut allergies are very serious. These muffins should only be served at home, where you know that no one has a peanut allergy.  Your child should not eat them before going to school or to the local playground as peanut oil can remain on hands for a long time and some individuals can experience an allergic reaction by touching a child with peanut residue.
