Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:25 minutes
Yield: 12 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup applesauce OR 1 cup mashed ripe banana (the ones with brown spots are perfect)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (can also substitute with any nut butter or seed butter of choice)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon  fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup  fruit based jam or our homemade chia pudding

Notes

We use our Raspberry Chia Pudding as the fruit based jam and it’s delicious. You can also replace the raspberry in the chia pudding recipe with strawberries or mixed berries for a different berry taste.
 
Kid Tip: Let your kids help dump the ingredients and mix as age appropriate.
 
 
 
 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  • Line a 12 cup muffin tin with muffin liners and spray the inside of the liners with avocado oil spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and then add in the applesauce (or banana), peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. 
  • Then add in the oat flour, baking powder, and salt and combine until incorporated (you don't want to over mix). 
  • Evenly divide the batter into the muffin tins. 
  • Add about 1 teaspoon of jam on top of each muffin and use a butter knife to gently swirl the jam into the batter, just a few times. Don’t over swirl it!
  • Bake for 23-27 minutes. You know they are done when a toothpick comes out mostly clean. 
  • Let cool for ~5 minutes, then transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely and enjoy!
