Muffin Tuesday PB&J&B Muffins


Yesterday I spent way too much time on the Mozart bioBlog so I didn’t have time to make any muffins… thus I bring unto you… MUFFIN TUESDAY! Today I have for you PB&J&B (Peanut Butter, Jelly and Blueberry) Muffins. I’ve done a double batch so I could send a few off to college kiddos, but you can just as easily halve this and make a single batch.

5.  Put  about 2 tablespoons of batter into each muffin cup.

6. In a small bowl combine the Jelly and the mashed Blueberries.

7. Divide the Jelly/Blueberry mixture evenly onto each of the muffins.

8. Cover the Jelly with another 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter. Try to do this so you have enough for all the muffins.

Muffins in the fore ground are complete, those in the back left have the jelly, but not the top layer of batter.

9. Sprinkle the chopped nuts on top.

10. Bake for 20 minutes. Muffins are done when they are golden brown and pass the toothpick test. LET COOL (the jelly will be hot!)

I loved the flavor of peanut butter and the sweetness of the jelly. The little pop and zing of the blueberry was extra nice surprise. Alas I didn’t have any tasters around to give me a second opinion. I did give the ladies at the post office a few, but I couldn’t wait around to see what they liked or didn’t like. Guess you’ll just have to whip up a batch and judge for yourselves. 😉
