Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins for Kids (Or Adults)

"I wanted to start cooking healthier choices to make available for my son's breakfast or snack. Beings he loves cupcakes, I pulled this one off as a "peanut butter cupcake" and it worked like a gem. Upon serving, spread on some butter with jelly or honey. This recipe originated from a 1980's edition of Better Homes and Gardens Kids Snacks cookbook, handed down to me from my aunt, whose kids are now grown."

    I used a some whole wheat pastry flour instead of flour. I used toasted rolled oats instead of the quick oats. I also put a piece of banana in the center before cooking. Very good muffins

    I was really excited about this recipe, but it turned out being pretty bland. I added mini chocolate morsels to my second batch and it really improved the muffin. I wouldn't make this again without adding chocolate.

    These were really good! I used whole wheat flour, oat flour & Splenda brown sugar blend. I also added 1/4 cup Splenda, natural peanut butter & 1/2 tsp cinn. I topped them with a cinn/Splenda before baking for 15 min. Came out moist & delicious. Loved the healthy ingredients, too. Thank you for sharing!

    I really liked these muffins. I was looking for oatmeal muffins, but saw peanutbutter was an ingrediant and could not resist. I will keep looking for an oatmeal muffin, but this is my peanut butter recipe. I used old fashioned oatmeal.

Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
