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.
