Peanut Butter Muffins

We love these Peanut Butter Muffins as a quick grab and go breakfast, brunch and mid-afternoon pick-me-up snacks too!


2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup crunchy or smooth natural peanut butter
1 cup whole milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup melted, unsalted butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup peanut butter chips


Preheat oven to 350° F with the rack in the middle. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.

Add the peanut butter to the flour mixture, blending it in with a fork until you have a coarse, crumbly texture. Stir in the milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Fold in the peanut butter chips.

Coat a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full with batter.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the muffins are light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
