Always trying to be a little healthier when creating treats for the boy (and my waistline) i'll switch up and use some wholewheat flour and honey instead of sugar! Not always as sweet but very tasty.
These peanut butter and honey muffins came out great, i got to use my silicone muffin cups to bake them in for the very first time, talk about ease of removing them!! Although a bit of a pain to wash them after.....
Peanut Butter & Honey Muffins (wholewheat)
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup wholewheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup honey OR sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup peanut butter, smooth or crunchy
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl, rub/cut in the butter (i do it by hand as i have no processor)
When it resembles breadcrumbs, mix in peanut butter, honey, egg & milk until JUST combined.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake for 20-25 minutes (depends on your oven) or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Makes 12 Muffins.
*You can use all plain flour instead of wholewheat and sugar instead of honey if you like, i have made these several different ways and this recipe is the way the boy likes them =) we added in 1/4 cup chopped roasted peanuts also!
