These light and fluffy peanut butter and jelly muffins are everything you could ever want. Sweet, slightly salty peanut butter muffins stuffed with your favorite jam. Snacking just got a whole lot better.
There was a time in my life when I could swear that my diet was at least 80% peanut butter and 20% jelly. I would wake up and have peanut butter and jelly oatmeal, eat two peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch, and for dessert, have a Belgium waffle topped with peanut butter and jelly. Of course between meals I would have peanut butter and jelly smoothies and these peanut butter and jelly muffins. At the time, I was about 6 or 7 months pregnant, but still those were good times and I miss them.
I feel like I need to get back to those days. This time I probably won’t do the pb & j sandwiches with pepperjack cheese anymore now that I am experiencing weird pregnancy cravings. But definitely more peanut butter and jelly muffins and those waffles.
These muffins are ridiculously light and moist. They are soft and almost melt in your mouth. All you need is a nice tall glass of ice cold milk. You can use any jam or jelly, but my personal preference is to reach for jam or preserves. Something that still have bits of fruit in it because jelly tends to melt into the muffin the most. I used blueberry and blackberry jam that I made during the summer.
