Growing up I was the oddball kid who never liked my peanut butter and jelly to touch. I loved either a plain peanut butter sandwich, or it all dressed up with bananas and honey, or a good old fluffernutter sandwich (peanut butter and fluff). I loved my jelly plain on toast..

However, now I’ve found a healthy and creative way to make “PB & J” my morning jam!

Peanut  Butter & Jelly Muffin Mix

1c Oat Flour (I used organic old fashion oats and ground them into a flour)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour ( I used a mix of buckwheat and chickpea flour)

1/4 cup peanut (or almond) flour (powdered peanut butter would also work)

2 small-medium ripe  bananas

1/4 c brown coconut sugar (sweetener of choice)

2 flaxseed eggs ( 2tbsp milled flaxseed + 6 tbsp water)

2  tsp double acting baking powder

3/4 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup natural unsalted nut/seed butter

1 c milk of choice

Jelly Swirl

1 cup strawberries pureed

1 tbsp agave nectar (honey or maple syrup would work well too)

2 tbsp brown coconut sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

Mix all your dry ingredients

if using 2 flaxseed eggs instead of real 2 eggs like I did, then mix your flaxseed and water and let sit 1-2 minutes

Mix all other wet ingredients add the flaxseed mixture to the wet ingredients

Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly

Butter/oil your muffin pans (or use liners)

Add muffin mix to your muffin pan (mine made six muffins)


Puree your strawberries in blender or food processor mix with agave (or another liquid sweetener of choice) and brown coconut sugar (or other sugar).

Swirl about a tbsp of strawberry mixture in each muffin

I made six full-size muffins and would have enough of the strawberry mixture for each one. However, my husband doesn’t like strawberries in his muffins and so I made blueberry muffins for him using the same muffin mixture (which I tried and didn’t love, even though he seemed to enjoy them). I found the PB&J muffins quite delicious and will have to make myself some more again soon! Image result for winking emoji

What favorite food combinations make you wanna say, now that’s my jam!?

I hope you enjoy my take on a classic childhood comfort food for a delicious morning twist!

    1. I’m always modifying recipes to my tastes too so I understand πŸ˜‰…though I’ve found when using chickpea and buckwheat flour, I need a little extra sweet to balance out the bitter earthy taste. πŸ€¨πŸ™ƒ

      1. I haven’t used it in any baking recipes, but that would make sense. Thank you for the suggestion!😁

    1. And of course there are many substitute ingredients that would work nicely if you’re lacking any of them …I say experiment with it and have fun!😘 πŸ˜ƒπŸ’ž

  1. So lovely! i think if the illustration can be complete info for “ingredients” if it has measurements? πŸ™‚ — i’m visual learner so if you add somehow i can possibly bake! — πŸ˜›

    1. Absolutely, I asked my audience to let me know if they wanted me to add measurements, I can definitely do that.😁
