Ingredients

Baked PB&J Almost-Donuts Ingredients - Peanut Butter & Co. Crunch Time Peanut Butter

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Crunch Time or http://ilovepeanutbutter.com/index.php/peanut-butter-1/oldfashionedcrunchy.html
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4-1/3 cup raspberry jam

2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners or parchment squares or spray them with nonstick spray. Fill each cup about 2/3 full with batter, making an indent in the middle with your spoon. Fill each with about a teaspoon of raspberry jam. Top with a large spoonful of batter, spreading it to cover the jam and seal around the edge.

    My favorite PB sandwich is peanut butter and banana with a drizzle of honey, which I’ve also translated into ice cream and bowls of oatmeal!

  2. Natalie J Vandenberghe says:

    This recipe sounds delicious–my whole family would enjoy, I’m sure. I like to have bacon with my peanut butter & jelly 🙂

  3. Melissa says:

    My favorite twist on PB&J is to use Pumpkin Butter in place of jelly… perfect sandwich for fall!

  4. Kimberly says:

    Yum! I need to make these straight away!

    • Mike says:

      Lol. Yeah good luck w those they were a disaster. There is obviously some type of misprint in that recipe. What a waste of my time.

    These look so Yummy and full of Protein too.

  6. Emily says:

    OOo these look delicious! My toddler is as much of a PB nut as I am so we’ll definitely have to make these!

    My fave PB sandwich is the Elvis- with banana, honey and bacon. Don’t eat them that often though!

  7. Pat Johndro says:

    These look so delicious! Will have to try very soon! Would be good with other jams!

  8. Katie Pearman says:

    I love PB & J vegan banana ice-cream :o) Frozen banana blended in the food processor til creamy, then a spoon each of peanut butter and raspberry jam!! Heavenly!!

  9. Tara says:

    I like to add potato chips to my peanut butter and jelly! I’m a muffin firms and I can’t believe I haven’t tried pb&j muffins yet. I need to change this ASAP!

  10. Tamara says:

    Might sound crazy, but I’ve tried PB in a wrap with broccoli slaw, crushed red pepper and orange marmalade! Great way to get my PB fix and a serving of veggies.

    I tried making a peanut butter and jelly rugelach one time. It was quite a messy affair, but very tasty!

  12. Maudena says:

    Here is my two cents. My favorite is peanut butter on top of a toasted pita. Top with sliced bananas and drizzle with Hershey’s chocolate sauce. So yummy exspecially when the peanut butter is all warm and runny 🙂 makes me want to make one right now. The other is to add Pb to my no bake cheesecake recipe and top with jelly makes a really pretty pie. And it only takes cool whip, pb, sugar and cream cheese and your favorite jelly flavor….

    Ok so we made these muffins today because we thought they looked so good. It ended up a total DISASTER. We followed this recipe to the T. What we ended up with resembled something of an empty volcano. They overflowed during cooking leaving nothing in the muffin pan and what was around the rim was hard as a rock. In the pictures included in the recipe the batter resembles something of a dough. Ours ended up being a very thin batter. There is something dreadfuly wrong with thje measurements on this recipe, either not enough flour, or too much liquids. Which I do not know. Not only was I completely disappointed but also a lil annoyed that not only did we waste time and ingredients, but ALSO out peanut butter that we had just received the day before. It would actually be NICE if these recipes were tested before being posted on this blog BEFORE people waste their time and money on something from someone who cannot print a recipe correctly. Not trying to be rude, its just my two cents and opinion. If U follow this link to my FB U can see what these FOUGH NUTS end up looking like.

    At least they got the name of the recipe right. Lol. On a lighter note the Peanut Butter Chicken Chili was FABULOUS but as far as any of the recipes that involve baking,I will defintely think twice.

    • Mike says:

      Also by the way it shows two eggs pictured and calls for one?

    • admin says:

      Hi Mike,

      We are sorry to hear you had a problem making the faux-nut muffins. Every recipe we put on the blog has been developed and successfully made. We went through the ingredients to make sure we didn’t miss anything or have any typos and we found nothing problematic. We tried looking at your picture on FB but the link brought us to a page saying the content is unavailable. We’re trying to see if we saw anything obvious causing the problem. At this point we cannot pin point any problem or error that caused such a bad experience. Also, you are right about the picture, it is misleading. The recipe does only call for one egg.
