I love peanut butter. This has been clearly documented on this blog here, here and here. It took me until I was in my twenties before I really got in to peanut butter, I think it was about the time I realised I could turn it in to buttercream frosting…go figure! Pairing peanut butter with jam (jelly) is a classic American snack, but it’s just not really a thing here in the UK. I must say that it is actually pretty good, if you find that peanut butter is just a bit too dry on its own (you know the way it sticks to your mouth when you eat it?) then adding jam really is the answer.
These muffins were baked after searching the cupboards for inspiration. There wasn’t enough chocolate for cookies, no berries for cupcakes, no over ripe bananas for bread and then I found the peanut butter and a jar of homemade jam…perfect!
I made a few minor tweaks to the recipe so suit what I had on hand and they turned out really great. The yogurt helps keep them moist and the wholemeal flour adds texture and makes you feel like you’re doing some healthy eating. Pat yourself on the back, the muffins are totally good for you…sorta, maybe, not. Either way, they’re good and are WONDERFUL snack food. (more…)
