These healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins make for a perfect after-school snack that all the kiddos will love!
All three of my boys are starting school today and as much as I’ve said I’m looking forward to all the baking and blogging I’m going to get to do now, I know I’m going to miss them like crazy and will be counting down the minutes until I go pick them up.
I know that they’re going to love school and I can’t wait to hear all about it on the ride home. I also know they’re going to be super hungry and begging for a snack the minute we walk in the door. Well, I’ve got that covered…
These healthy little Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins were a huge hit the first time I baked them. They taste just like a PB&J, but in muffin form. They get a healthy boost from whole wheat flour and Greek yogurt and have lots of peanut butter and jelly flavor all throughout them. So yummy!
I’m planning to bake up a batch of these mini muffins on a Monday morning so we can eat a few for breakfast that morning, maybe even pack one in their lunch boxes as a treat for lunch, and of course, have them on a plate waiting for the boys to devour as an after-school snack. They’re easy to bake and yummy to eat…
Who doesn’t love a good PB&J?! And this marvelous muffin version is sweet, snackable and oh so scrumptious!
