Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

I have a thing for peanut butter and jelly. Although thing may not exactly be the right word – obsession may be a little more accurate.

In recent weeks, PB&Js have been my go-to dinner and although this may seem a wee bit shocking, I’d gladly forgo a steak for two slices of multi-grain bread slathered with Skippy Natural Super Chunk and seedless strawberry jam. Seedless is key, guys. Who wants to ruin the PB&J experience by having to pick tiny seeds from your teeth? Not this girl.

Excessive PB&J eating habits aside, I’ve also grown quite fond of this combination in baked good form too. Whether we’re talking peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, cookies, or bars, this combo pretty much equals baked goods bliss in my brain. So naturally my mind went to peanut buttery muffins filled with sweet jam. Seriously, grab-and-go breakfast at its finest.

And since I do everything in excess, I topped these Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins with a glaze. Why? Well, let’s face it – I like my muffins to be all glisteny, but it’s totally not necessary. In fact, we actually preferred the non-glazed version.

Please tell me I’m not alone in my PB&J addiction?

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

Ingredients:

2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy
1 large egg
1 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
jelly or jam

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin pan with paper liners, or spray each well with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

3. Add peanut butter, and mix on medium speed until well combined and crumbly.

4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla. Add to peanut butter mixture and mix until just combined.

5. Using a medium cookie scoop (1 1/2 tablespoons) add muffin batter to prepared muffin wells. Next, place 2 teaspoons of your favorite jam or jelly in the center of the muffin batter and top with another scoop (1 1/2 tablespoons) of muffin batter. If necessary, use a spoon or knife to gently spread batter to cover the jam.

6. Bake preheated oven for 22-25 minutes.

Notes:

-Muffins are best served the day they are made, but they will store in an airtight container at room temperature for one day.
-I chose not to include the glaze information with this recipe, because we far preferred them without the this additional step.

You're in good company. I've been in a PB and J phase ever since a friend gave me home-made PB as a gift, and this would be perfect to bring in to work for the upcoming 40 hour 4 day roadshow.

I happen to have all of these I gradients in my cupboard/fridge, except for the milk, as I'm allergic to milk. If I ever have milk around, it's usually skim milk. How essential is it to have WHOLE milk? I don't know much about the chemistry of cooking, so before I waste any of the flour, sugar, etc., I just want to know if the milk must be whole milk.

Tee- I haven't tested with other liquids but you could try coconut milk or almond milk. I hope this helps.

These muffins look amazing. Can I use Almond butter instead of peanut butter ? Because that's what I have at home right now :-)

Thanks,

Almond butter should substitute just fine. Thanks for visiting.
