“It’s So Fabulous!” Recipe of the Week: As many of you may already know, I am a bit of a health food addict, and as a result, my youngest daughter, Grayanna, has started eating healthy, as well. When we dine at the restaurant in our local health food store, she typically orders the all-natural peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Her love for this delicious lunch made me wonder if she would possibly enjoy this new recipe I found for PB&J Muffins…. Hmmmm…. Definitely worth a shot! Drop me a comment and let me know if you have a chance to try this recipe before I do! (Found at www.Deliciouslivingmag.com).
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1. Preheat oven to 400º. Spray paper muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. With two knives or a pastry blender, cut in peanut butter until coarse crumbs form and mixture is no longer powdery. Add milk, honey, carrot, zucchini, eggs, and oil; stir until well moistened.
3. Spoon about 2 tablespoons batter into each muffin cup. Top each with about 1 teaspoon fruit preserves. Cover with remaining batter. Bake 15–20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
