This recipe is one of six recipes developed by noted food bloggers for the Peanut Butter & Co. and Stonyfield Nutty About Yogurt Recipe Contest. The recipes were created using Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter and Stonyfield organic yogurt. The contest was a part of our 2012 yearlong initiative “Build a Better Breakfast with Peanut Butter.”

I love to bake on the weekends. One of my favorite things to bake are muffins, which are an easy grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings. To keep them healthy, these muffins have whole-grains, healthy fat and protein thanks to Smooth Operator peanut butter, fruit and non-fat dairy. The yogurt filling adds a special touch while still keeping this a healthy treat. If you want to make these not gluten-free, you can easily substitute 2 cups of whole wheat flour for the rice flour, chickpea flour, and arrowroot starch.
