Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

The origins of this recipe come from here. As usual, I've tweaked it and changed a bunch of stuff - this time since I knew my kids would devour them, I made them a little healthier.

What you need:

1.5 c. whole what flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 tsp dark corn syrup
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. smooth peanut butter
2 eggs
3/4 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Either 4 tbsp. softened butter OR 2 heaping tbsp. of Lighter Bake
Choice of Jelly

What you do:

1) Get an unsuspecting helper who likes peanut butter and jelly:

2) Mix dry ingredients and set aside.

3) Beat butter (or lighter bake) and sugar until creamy. Add in corn syrup, egg, peanut butter, vanilla, and milk.

4) Add dry ingredients to wet mixture

5) Spoon into muffin cups.

6) Give some to helper:

7) You can either use a spoon or - being the genius I am - use an injector (in this case my baby's Motrin dispenser) to get the jelly into the muffins.

If no injector device is accessible, spoon only 1/2 the muffin mix in, let sit for a few minutes, then put a plop of jelly, then the other 1/2 of muffin mix on top.

8) Bake at 375 approximately 20 minutes until passes the toothpick test. Makes 12 muffins. All of which will be eaten in one day by your little family of four.
