"These were very good but not quite sweet enough for my bunch. Next time I will add a little more sugar. They were very easy to make but be careful to cover the jelly completely with the last layer of peanut butter mixture. If you don't it will bubble out during cooking and get all over the oven! (like mine did :) Great flavor! Used grape jelly as that was all I had on hand. Oh, and they were done in 18 minutes. Thanks for a creative recipe for the old standby PB&J. ~Lana~"
"Just made these. Pretty good. I added 1/2 cup more sugar, 1/4 cup more peanut butter, and 1/4 cup more milk. They are really yummy warm with some butter and sprinkled sugar. I think next time I will add even more peanut butter and use good old grape jelly."
"Loved these!! Hubby ate them up, and took them in his lunch to work! Thanks! Very easy to make, tasted great, and was a big hit at my house. "
"These were GREAT geema!!! I used a delicious organic creamy peanut butter, and I used swiss strawberry preserves that I had my mom send me from the market at home... Gosh.. these were just absolutely wonderful!! I made a SECOND batch, and made it in a loaf pan, and it came out beautiful! I plan to share this with friends :-) Thanks geema! Yet another wonderful recipe!! "
"This is such a great recipe! Not too sweet, just right for a snack. I added a couple of tablespoons of cream cheese to add a little bit more moisture, although the muffins probably would have been fine without that. Mine were done in 22 minutes. The next time, I might add another quarter cup of peanut butter."
"Just made these this morning and I really enjoyed them. I followed the directions exactly and they came out perfect. I used crunchy peanut butter and grape jelly. I have a six year old, so we have the squeeze bottle version, and that actually worked really well for adding it to the pan. They are a great balance of sweet and salty! I'll definitely be making these again!"
"Although I had to add more sugar (sweetness) and a little more milk(for denseness) (after reading reviews), they turned out perfect. Thank you for sharing this EASY recipe. I had them made before my daughter left for school. They are so deelish!!! I even used apple, grape and strawberry jelly! Then topped with pink, red and purple sugar to identify and add color! They are so great (especially warm)! Can't wait for my teenage daughter to try, being that PB&J is her fave. Mine turned out perfect! =)"
"So simple to make and so quickly!! And they're not messy at all, as long as you cover the jam properly. I loved them, can't wait for hubby to get home and try them! I have a feeling they won't last long. Thanks for the recipe!!"
"My husband's idea of the food pyramid is peanut butter, more peanut butter and jelly. And, since he's diabetic and the only store in town offering no sugar muffins quit carrying them I decided to try baking. I've always been a cook, just not a baker. He just tasted the first one, and when I asked him how many stars based on one to five he emphatically said SIX.
Now my question, and it isn't limited to this recipe, is this: the texture seems more like a scone to me than a muffin. This is the fifth or sixth recipe I've tried and they're all the same. Is that something to do with Mexican flour or are home made muffins more scone-like than store-bought?
Thanks for posting the recipe and I'll be making it again and again. I just substituted Splenda for the sugar and sugar-free jam, worked great."
"I added a half cup of oats, a little less honey instead of sugar than the recipe called for, and I mixed about a quarter cup of jam in with the batter. I also used half whole wheat flour. I'm excited to see how it comes out!!"
"My kids really enjoyed these. I added 1/2 cup of sugar, some more peanut butter and a cup or so of oats. It was very filling! Next time, I'm going to add half white/half brown sugar and see how that turns out."
"Turned out okay. Incredibly messy to make and probably won't give to my 2 1/2 yo to eat. I made sure the jam was covered and still bubbled out all over pan. I agree it needs more sugar, too."
"Very dense and filling muffins! I used my Mulberry Jam and home made Banana nut jelly. You've gotta try these with the banana! Topped each with peanuts. I agree they might be in need of a little more sugar, but I think next time I'll just add more preserves. I loved these still warm from the oven."
"First, I must say that I do not like peanut butter! That said, my DW and DD love peanut butter! DW wanted a peanut butter muffin, so I tried this recipe. I used my homemade grape jelly. According to DW and and DD these are excellent! In fact I have been asked to make them again! Thanks for a great recipe, according to DW and DD."
"I made these as an after school snack today and the kids and I really liked them. They were easy to mix up and didn't take long at all. Due to another review I did and a little more sugar and think next time i will sprinkle a little on top before baking. I used blackberry jam and the flavors were delicious."
"These taste just like a PBJ sandwich! Great taste, but the muffin was a little dense."
"Geema..you have a hit here..grandkids stayed over do made these for breakfast all loved them..as stated before let them cool a bit..center is lava hot..Thanks"
"Wow. These are delish. The kiddos are still sleeping (Sunday morning) so I thought I would try this recipe on them when they woke up! I just ate one right out of the oven! OH YUM! Be careful though. I had a couple that I apparently pushed the jelly too low into the muffin and they leaked a bit out of the muffin and it is super hot!"
"I make these whenever I babysit my friends boys. They go nuts! I love it because normally irt is a battle to get them to eat anything that dosn't come from a microwave!"
"My kids love these! I make them into mini muffins so they are easier for them to eat. "
