Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins

Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins

Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins

Who doesn’t love peanut butter and jelly?! We LOVE the combination at our house.  A peanut butter jar does not last long here. We like to smear it on everything :) As you all know, I love to bake after school snacks for my kiddos on a pretty regular basis…this muffin recipe is what I came up with earlier in the week. It’s a recipe that I added to my collection from Cooking Light Magazine long ago, 2007 to be exact.  www.cookinglight.com You can use regular or crunchy peanut butter and any flavor of jam that you wish. They are  fairly low-cal, coming in at 185 calories per muffin and over 5 grams of protein each. I hope you enjoy as much as we did. When I asked Kyle, my oldest son, his opinion, he told me “Mom, I ate 4 at one sitting.”  I guess I’ll take that as a compliment!
