Recipe Challenge: Day 8 – PB & J Muffins

Pin It
My Grandmother emailed me this recipe two years ago, and I just recently came by it again. Hate when I lose a recipe , but love finding it all over again!
 My kids loved these peanut butter and jam muffins.  Such a great treat for after school! You can change the jam even, and my Grandmother also said she subbed the jam with some chocolate chips. I want to try to put banana’s in there and see how that goes. Sounds yummy doesn’t it? What are you waiting for? Gather up the ingredients!

The jam sits in it’s own little pocket while it bakes. When you cut it open or bite into it, the jam is steaming hot! Make sure you let them cool off. I enjoy warm muffins, but this one I think  I’ll let cool off a tad longer before I eat it. 🙂

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins
Ingredients
No-Stick Cooking Spray
2 cups  All Purpose Flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup jam or preserves of choice

Topping: 1/4 cup sugar

Directions
Heat oven to 375. Spray muffin pan with no stick spray. Stir together flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Add milk, eggs, sugar, peanut butter and oil to bowl; combine ingredients on the low speed of an electric mixer, just until moistened. Do not overbeat.

Fill prepared muffin cups evenly with half the batter. Place 2 level teaspoons jam or preserves in the center of each muffin. Evenly divide remaining batter between muffin cups. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven; cool in pan 5 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.

Enjoy these, they go fast! My kids enjoyed helping me make these 🙂
