Peanut Butter Oat Muffins
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min.
Not bad. I could think of some other muffin recipes I'd rather make that I thought were better.
I made these gluten free by substituting gf flour and they were wonderful. The whole family loved them and wanted more - in process right now!
Wow, these are super yummy! I changed a few things (my husband always laughs at how incapable of actually following a recipe I really am!) because we only eat organic and/or non-GMO foods. I used all natural peanut butter, and since the consistency was a little stickier than if I had used commercial, I added about 1/4 cup of extra oats. I also used half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour. My husband and I both have bad teeth from a childhood of bad oral hygiene, so nuts of any kind are usually a bad idea for us. Instead, I used 1/2 cup of raisins. I love cinnamon, so I mixed cinnamon and sugar in a little bowl and sprinkled some on the top of each muffin before baking them. So yummy, and with all the healthy tweaks, I can feed these to my children for an easy, guilt-free breakfast. As far as muffins sticking to the papers, it usually means the muffins were baked just a teensy bit too long. It took me a while to figure out that my oven is hotter than it reads, but I don't know by how much. I can't seem to figure that part out. When I bake things, I start checking them about 1/3 of the time before they are supposed to be done, and then every two minutes afterwards until they are done. It can be a little time-consuming, but at least all my effort and time don't end up wasted.
I had read the comments about these muffins being bland so I added chocolate chips. I also left out the peanuts since one family member doesn't like nuts. The results were very good. They were more filling than regular muffins because of the oatmeal.
Oh so yummy! Whole wheat flour works great.~ Theresa
Bland in flavor... overall not very good. I will not be making these again.
Kind of light on flavor. Sticks to muffin papers. Good with jelly.
