  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins – An easy and delicious muffin recipe swirled with creamy peanut butter and strawberry jam. Perfect to pack for lunch or an after school snack. There’s no combination that’s better together than PB&J!

    My family loves the traditional PB&J sandwich, but we also like to make fun variations too. These peanut butter and jelly muffins are one of our favorites, along with PB&J cookies, breakfast bowls and skewers.

    Peanut Butter Muffins

    I can’t believe my kids are already back in school! It’s been a fun and crazy summer, especially since we moved across from the country from Ohio to Portland. The kids are so excited to be at their new school and make friends! They haven’t had a chance to make many new friends yet since we just moved, so this gives them the perfect opportunity. They’ve had to lean on each other a lot this summer and are best friends (of course they have their fighting moments too).

    As soon as school starts, I like to make lots of yummy and easy snack recipes for lunch boxes or after school. These swirled PB&J muffins made with Jif creamy peanut butter and Smucker’s strawberry jam are absolutely delicious and are my kids’ favorite back to school snack. Not only are they really tasty, but my kids had so much fun making them together. We love the traditional PB&J, but these peanut butter muffins are a fun variation and are the perfect grab and go snack. My littles loved helping me make these.

    The creamy Jif peanut butter mixed with the sweet Smucker’s strawberry jam makes a perfect pair….there really is no combination that is better together! Jif is truly the “PB” to Smucker’s “J” and together the ultimate combination inspires our family to spread #WeAreBetterTogether love. The best things happen when peanut butter and jam come together!

    Ways to modify peanut butter muffins

    Mini muffins: Sometimes I’ll use a mini muffin pan (with 24 cups) to make this peanut butter muffin recipe and skip the extra jam and peanut butter on top.

    Bread: This recipe is easy to turn into bread as well. Just pour half of the batter into the bottom of the bread pan and top with strawberry jam. Cover the jam with the remaining batter and then top with 4 Tablespoons each of peanut butter and jam. Gently swirl with toothpick.

    Jam: I like to use the classic strawberry jam, but you could easily switch it up if you’d prefer. Try using blackberry, grape or raspberry jam instead.
