Very different muffin recipie! I like cutting the PB into the batter before everything else is added, it gives them a very crumbly, moist texture -- no chewy or springy muffin here. These are a bit of a hassle -- messier than traditional muffins and the wells in the batter are a bit tricky. Also, I reccomend a tad more peanut butter, or use of an all-natural PB, to bring that taste to the top. Used whole wheat flour. Overall, fun and tasty muffin.

Another great one parsley. Sometimes i add kisses in the center instead of jam.

I was not impressed by these muffins. I added another 1/4 c. of milk so that it would spread out, and the overall flavor wasn't too exciting. Not worth the fat from the peanut butter and oil. Perhaps I just didn't have as good of luck, but I probably wont be making these again. If you do make these, be sure to cover the jam with another layer of batter. I also topped with a little turbino sugar. The appearance of these muffins was nice, but the flavor was just not impressive. However, I would like to add that this may be a good recipe for kids to snack on- it just doesn't fit the bill as a nice 'muffin'.

Wow!! I LOVED these muffins!! The peanut butter flavour shines through. My muffins were very moist until the 4th day & then they started to get a little dry. I used raspberry jam & a little less of it than the recipe called for. I also chose to use the creamy pb. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly & won't change a thing for the next time!!

I used creamy pb and reduced the sugar just a little bit. I used field berry jam. They are beautiful and yummy. Thanks Parsley. Made for Market Tag.

I made these at Christmas so the kids would have something to snack on while they waited for Dinner to be ready. I thought they would enjoy them but no such luck. They each ate about half a muffin and left the rest on the plate. When I tasted them they were really dry and did not taste very peanut butterish. All the jam melted into the muffin during baking.

Nice peanutty flavour in these and we all loved the jam 'surprise' in the centres. I think the peanut flavour could be made even more pronounced, and the texture more interesting with the addition of chopped, roasted peanuts in the batter. They rose high and are very attractive.

This recipe was wonderful! I made them last night, and they're already all gone! They didn't come out perfect because I kind of overfilled the muffin cups, but it had a really great rustic look to them, which I loved. I used whole wheat flour and soy milk instead of regular--and also added vanilla. It was perfect! I also used a little more soy milk than called for--because I was worried about it being dry, but they're moist and wonderful! Thank you Parsley!

A little dry, but that's to be expected I think and the jelly really helped! We tried the first batch as posted, but it just made our muffins be cut in half. We ended up filling the cup and making a hole in the center, filing it with jelly, then covering the top so it had a nice jelly center... YUM! This was a hit with all of us!

Very neat muffins! These had a very strong peanut butter taste and the jam in the centre sweetened it up. They rose quite a bit so don't overfill your muffin cups! They were a little dry, but overall a very good snack/lunch box filler! Thanks!
