Peanut Butter Honey Muffins

This morning Stella and I made some yummy Peanut Butter Honey Muffins! Simple and delicious… my favorite kind of recipe. My kids love muffins and will eat them for breakfast or a snack. I thought these tasted like Nutter Butter cookies!

Let’s make some Peanut Butter Honey Muffins…

First, you are going to combine all of your dry ingredients in one bowl. That would be your flours, baking soda and salt.


Next, in a separate bowl you are going to combine your sugars, honey, and peanut butter with a whisk. Stir until well combined. Then, add the milk, egg whites, and egg to the honey mixture. Stir until well combined.


Next, make a well in the center of the flour mixture and then add in the liquid ingredients.

Then, stir with a spatula until just moist. Do not over stir the muffins! Don’t worry if there are lumps or you still see bits of peanut butter. My little chef got too hungry and needed a banana while waiting for her muffins!

Grease a muffin pan and divide mixture evenly among 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Finally, bake at 400 degrees for about 18 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and cool on rack. Enjoy!
