Peanut Butter Breakfast Muffins

Sometimes great recipes come about simply because ingredients need to be used up. That was the case with these Peanut Butter Breakfast Muffins. I had bought the peanut butter I used from Trader Joe's, thinking I would like it... but I really did not. However, I knew it would probably make delicious muffins. I was right!

I had considered going for a PB&J muffin, and briefly thought about adding a bit of jam in the centers, but decided to go with the craisins instead. So they are more like Peanut Butter and (almost) Jelly Muffins... I think Peanut Butter Breakfast Muffins is probably a better name, though. They are not too sweet, and with 5g of protein and 4g of fiber they are a decent way to start the day. With coffee, of course... lots of coffee! (And perhaps some green juice. But I am drifting off topic here... how about the recipe?!)

Peanut Butter Breakfast Muffins

yield: 29 muffins (I never bake anything without making enough to share!)

2.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 cups whole grain oats
1 cup brown sugar
2 T baking powder
1 tsp salt
2.5 cups almond milk
1 cup trader joes crunchy peanut butter with flax and chia seeds
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
5oz blueberry craisins (or any flavor, this is what I used)

Now here is where a real food blogger or recipe author would share proper instructions. This is the main reason I am not a food blogger or recipe author (well... at least one of the many reasons!) I pretty much just mixed it all in a bowl. I used silicone baking cups lightly sprayed with coconut oil cooking spray, and put approximately 1/4 cup of batter in each. I baked them in my truly wacky oven for 14 minutes at 325 degrees. In a normal oven I would *guess* that is something like 350 degrees for 18(ish) minutes. I am not kidding about my oven being wacky... another good reason I am not a food blogger. I was really pleased with how they turned out, and Aiden has been gobbling up, so I feel free calling them preschooler-approved! (FYI... see the nutrition information below? There is a disclaimer there... I used myfitnesspal to calculate it. I am no nutrition expert so it is only as accurate as anything on the internet ever is, ha!)
