Do you have a savory peanut butter muffin recipe you like? I know you put a healthy spin on your recipes, and so many of the peanut butter muffins are pretty decadent. Thanks! ~Marienne, CA
Oh, peanut butter, I think many of us are in love with you. I have loved peanut butter since I was a little kid. I have experimented with lots of other nut and seed butters, but peanut butter is always a staple in our house (I have to say my husband loves it even more than I do). I’m currently on an almond butter kick, but that changes. If you are reading this and you or your loved ones have a nut allergy, there are so many great options out there please don’t let it deter you–you can just use it in place of the peanut butter in this recipe! Sun butter is a great option (which is really just sunflower seeds and salt).
It’s easy to find decadent peanut butter recipes considering the the marriage between chocolate and peanut butter are one of the best. But it’s possible to have a good tasting muffin without all the frills too! However, I have included an additional recipe for the “glaze”, which consist of just two ingredients, should you want to dress it up. I also recommend for breakfast to just spread some additional nut butter on it for an extra protein kick. I put a half a date on top of a few of them too for fun.
