Ready In:
16 muffins




  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in peanut butter with a pastry blender (or 2 knives used scissor-style) until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make a well in center of mixture. Combine eggs and milk; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
  • Spoon half of batter into greased muffin pans (or line with paper muffin cups), filling one-third full; top each muffin with 3/4 teaspoon strawberry preserves. Spoon remaining batter into muffin pans, filling two-thirds full. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 17 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans immediately.

  1. These turned out really dense for me. I love the idea!
  2. These muffins were amazing!!! I made them using chunky, organic PB, sugarfree strawberry jelly and I replaced a 1/2 cup whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup AP flour. The muffins tasted just like a PB&J sandwich and were perfect for grab & go breakfasts with a big glass of milk. I kept them in the fridge and just warmed them in the microwave for about 20seconds making them warm & gooey. The only thing I would advise is to use the recommended ratio of PB mix to jelly. I filled the cups up a little more then halfway before adding the jelly and then topping with more PB mix which I think made them a bit dry but I did not mind this at all. I also only got 12 muffins out of the recipe instead of the 16 because I did this. Thanks so much for a great recipe....this is a new staple in our house!
  3. These were good and will make them again but I baked them for 15 minutes and they were to well done so will cut back on baking time.


<p>I recently celebrated my 19th anniversary living in SW Florida. I moved here from Massachusetts, just north of Boston. As much as I miss family back home, I truly love living here - the beaches, the tropical beauty, the people, and the weather (except the hurricanes!). Everyday is just another day in Paradise. I work at the new international airport here in Fort Myers. I have an opportunity to meet many different and interesting people from around the world. I've had an interest in cooking since I was a little boy, following my grandmother around the kitchen. Since I wasn't blessed with any artistic or musical talent, I think cooking was my way of being creative. My passion is my family and friends. My second passion is cooking for them. My favorite way to entertain is informally...brunches, cookouts, and small dinner parties. Just relaxing, enjoying each other's company, some good food and drink, and a little fun are the only rules of the house.</p>
