Favorite Peanut Butter Muffins

Tender, flavorful, and packed with protein, these muffins can have any add-in your family likes!

Ingredients:  – Whole wheat flour – Baking powder and baking soda – Peanut butter – Milk – Applesauce

1

– Sugar – Eggs – Vanilla extract – Optional Add-Ins

In a medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. In another bowl, stir together the peanut butter, milk, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla.

2

Gently stir the flour mixture into the peanut butter mixture to make a uniform batter. Grease a 12-cup standard muffin pan.

3

Add your desired add-in. (You can also add 1 tablespoon of any add-in to each muffin cup, to make a batch with a few different flavors. Or you can bake them plain).

4

Divide batter among the prepared muffin tin, using a little over ¼ cup batter in each cup. Bake for 14-16 minutes.

5

When the edges are lightly golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, remove from oven. Then transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool fully.

6

Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

7

Top with butter, nut butter, or jam as desired. To make mini muffins, reduce the baking time to about 10-12 minutes.
