Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins are a taste of childhood in every bite! Fluffy, tender muffins flavored with peanut butter and some secret healthy ingredients while featuring swirls of sweet jam throughout. Perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. Your family will love these!


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (or another cup of AP flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds (optional)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy, no-stir peanut butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup jam or jelly of choice, plus an additional 1/2 cup for swirling on top


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners (this recipe makes 18 muffins for me, so I prepare another 6-cup muffin tin as well). Spritz the paper liners with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.


  • Using the no-stir variety of peanut butter here ensures that the muffins won’t be too oily or dense. I highly recommend saving your natural peanut butter for another use – that said, there are some great natural peanut butters on the market that do not separate or require stirring.
  • I have not tested these as a dairy-free muffin, but I would guess that non-dairy milk and neutral vegetable oil (avocado, canola, etc) would work well in place of the milk and butter.
  • You can also play around with the flours used. I prefer a mix of all-purpose and whole-wheat pastry flour (NOT whole wheat flour – which will make the muffins too dense), but you could sub a 1:1 gluten-free flour or use all all-purpose or all whole-wheat pastry flour.
