Peanut Butter Muffins

My boy is completely obsessed with peanut butter and honey sandwiches right now. He wants them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have been complying with his requests but I thought a peanut butter and honey sandwich for breakfast probably isn't the best thing. I thought maybe trying a few variations of peanut butter might be good for a change. I found this recipe for peanut butter muffins on the Jif website. It was a success. I made half the batch as mini muffins, because mini muffins are always more fun to eat. The other half of the batch, I added chocolate chips. It makes a great mid day snack.

Peanut Butter Muffins

2 c. all purpose flour (I added 1 1/2 cups all purpose and 1/2 c. whole wheat)
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 c. milk
2 large eggs
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. salt (next time I might omit the salt)

Heat oven to 400. Spray muffin pan with no stick cooking spray. (For mini muffins heat to 350.)
Stir together flour and baking powder in a medium bowl; set aside.
Place milk, eggs, sugar, peanut butter and salt in a blender; cover and blend to combine. Pour over dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15-20 minutes (for mini muffins bake 10-12 minutes).

Yield: 12 regular muffins, 24-30 mini muffins
