Golden Peanut Butter Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

I found these muffins from an online site (unfortunately cannot remember the site) but I'll tell you these are very nice muffins that are not overly sweet and have a great nutty flavor. We love these for breakfast with a bit of jelly on top. They are also a great after-school snack.

Top Review by Ransomed by Fire

These muffins were pretty good, and I think they have some really good potential. I read where some of the other reviewers thought they were too dry. Coincidentally, I only had 1/2 the amount of margarine I needed (aka broke college students' butter). So I used half margarine and half shortening. My muffins came out fluffy and not too dry. I think this may have been due to the shortening. As for the flavor, once again, good potential, but I think the recipe could use some granulated sugar for added sweetness, and maybe, just maybe a pinch of cinnamon. Even my husband, who is not a big fan of peanut butter says he might like them if they had a little white sugar in them.
