Almond Butter and Jelly Muffins

I’m finally on Pinterest! I finally decided on a new way of organizing my recipes and ideas for recipes. I though it would be the most appropriate to do this on Pinterest so all of you can join along!

To celebrate this new beginning, I decided to share a recipe I discovered yesterday evening. It was around 9 PM and I had to stop myself from going to the kitchen when I stumbled upon this. It doesn’t help that I live with hungry college students. Or that I’m a hungry college student.

Most of you probably have everything you need to make this. I give you permission to go check. Go now. I’ll be here. You need almond butter, brown sugar, eggs, milk, oil, vanilla extract, flour, baking powder, and jam. Back? Ok, lets move on.

Making this is even easier. You combine everything in a large bowl, sandwich some jam between batter in a muffin tin, bake it for 20 minutes and be prepared to serve a delicious breakfast the next morning (if they even last that long). The original recipe used peanut butter which probably makes a little more sense for most people but I love my almond butter. Feel free to experiment with your own combinations because this recipe is pretty flexible!

A few weekends ago, my friends and I went strawberry picking at a local U-Pick strawberry farm. Since they were relatively post-season, I decided to make my own strawberry jam. They ended up perfect in these muffins.
