Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Muffins

Peanut Butter and Jelly Snack Muffins

Makes 12 muffins

Turn the classic kids' sandwich into whole wheat muffins with a sweet center. We love these muffins with standard grape jelly and strawberry jam, but try plum and rhubarb, too. For a nut-free version, swap peanut butter for sunflower seed butter.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 2/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fruit-sweetened fruit jelly or jam

Method: 

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, flaxseed meal, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, peanut butter, yogurt and eggs. Gradually stir peanut butter mixture into flour mixture until just combined.

Fill muffin cups half full (about 2 tablespoons each). Add 1 teaspoon jam into the center of each muffin. Top each with remaining batter. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes, then remove and let cool completely on a wire rack.
