Notes

Variation: You can use a mini muffin pan following the above directions. Check on muffins after 10-12 minutes of baking time.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 small eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or paper liners.

Sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut in the peanut butter along with the butter and blend until it resembles coarse crumbles. Add the milk and eggs all at once and stir well.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake for 15 minutes.

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
