In honor of National Peanut Day, we celebrate the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly. This delicious duo never gets old. It’s salty and sweet, healthy and full of childhood memories. It’s the flavor of nostalgia, of being a kid and bringing your lunchbox every day. And remembering it was packed with love by mom. This sandwich does hold a special place in our hearts.
For traditionalists who hold peanut butter and jelly dear, this muffin recipe is sure to please. It’s a great new twist on an old favorite. Plus, it’s full of good-for-your-heart plant protein and it’s super convenient too. This make-ahead meal is ridiculously tasty. These muffins might just become your new go-to breakfast for busy weekday mornings or your new energizing mid day snack.
