Who doesn’t love eating a delicious muffin…and peanut butter? Unfortunately, many coffee shops and store bought muffins are full of added sugars, preservatives and sometimes even fat. This peanut butter muffin recipe is super easy to make and tastes amazing.
Oh, peanut butter, I think many of us are in love with you. I have loved peanut butter since I was a little kid. I have experimented with lots of other nut and seed butters, but peanut butter is always a staple in our house. (I have to say my husband loves it even more than I do.)
I’m currently on an almond butter kick, but that changes. If you are reading this, and have a nut allergy, there are so many great options out there. So, please don’t let it discourage you. You can just use it in place of the peanut butter in this recipe. Sun butter is an excellent option (which is really just sunflower seeds and salt).
It’s easy to find decadent peanut butter recipes considering the marriage between chocolate and peanut butter are one of the best. But it’s possible to have a good tasting muffin without all the frills too. And, if you’re enjoying this for breakfast, I recommend some additional nut butter on it for an extra protein kick. In this recipe, I put a half a date on top of a few of them too for fun.
