Foodie Monday: Peanut butter muffins

Hi friends,

Here’s a hit around my house, an old recipe that my Dad used to make for us as kids, a definite childhood favourite!

Peanut butter Muffins

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth – we like smooth)

1 cup milk

1 egg, beaten

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1/3 cup unsalted peanuts, chopped, optional

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the peanut butter and combine with a pastry cutter or 2 forks until it has reached a coarse, crumbly texture. Stir in the milk, egg, and butter.
Coat a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full with batter. Evenly sprinkle some chopped peanuts over each if desired.
Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until light golden brown.
