A sweet and salty delicious muffin!
I’ve transformed my favorite childhood flavors of peanut butter and jelly into a satisfying muffin!
For as long as I can remember, I have loved the distinct flavors of peanut butter and jelly – both separately and together.
And truth be told, I truly love peanut butter! I could really just eat the stuff out of the jar. What about you?
Now, my husband — well, that is a different story. He dislikes the creamy goodness, yet if there is absolutely nothing sweet in the house except for something made with peanut butter, well, you guessed it, he will eat it.
So really, does he not like the stuff or is it just his last resort when he is craving something sweet?
On this one, your guess is as good as mine!
But let’s get back to these little gems. They are super easy to make and the end result is amazing!
They’re soft and hearty. The softness is from the creamy peanut butter and the heartiness is from the oats. They also include the cinnamon to provide that warming and comforting flavor and are are topped off with the sweetness from the strawberry jam.
Add a little crunch with the crushed peanuts and we are all ready for a yummy breakfast or anytime snack!
