Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

Here is an old standby that works for snacks, breakfasts, and packing lunches.  These are simple and the children love finding peanut butter and jelly nestled inside them.   I have even made them with just jelly.

I like them because they are cheap, easy, and filling.  I am not 100 % sure where I saw these tasty tidbits made.  I recall a show on PBS making them years ago and by years, I mean about 10 or more! 

My only complaint is that you are going to love them or hate them.  People have strong feelings about peanut butter or cornbread in this house.  Boys....

Here is what you will need:
  • prepared cornbread batter (you can use a package or mix it yourself-  I made my own today)
  • peanut butter
  • jelly (your choice-  we used strawberry because that was open)
  • cupcake tin and liners
  • nonstick spray-  optional
Here is what you do:
  • Prepare your muffin tins with the liners and lightly spray them with spray for easy removal of the muffins. 
  • Fill the muffin tin with a small layer of batter.

  • Add a dollop of peanut butter and a dollop of jelly to the insides of each muffin.

  • Cover the peanut butter and jelly with another layer of cornbread batter.

  • Sprinkle the tops with a little white sugar.

  • Bake according to your recipe or in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes-  you will need to watch them and test for doneness.  They may take longer because of the fillings.
  • Cool and enjoy!

What ingredients do you like to hide in muffins?
