Most schools are starting this coming week and some have even already been in class for a week or more! If you’re part of the lucky ones who wait until Labor Day to start the school year, enjoy the rest of your summer.
Today’s Sunday Sunday Supper menu will help you get ready for the school year, with plenty of ideas to get breakfast or dinner on the table quickly, lunches to make your kids happy, and snacks to keep you going. A big thank you to DB of Crazy Foodie Stunts and Caroline of Caroline’s Cooking for hosting this event and helping us stay organized this school year!
When I think “Back to School” I think of Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. I don’t exactly need to give you a recipe for PB&J – unless it’s my grilled one! Instead I decided to make muffins! These PB&J muffins are a perfect busy weekday breakfast or after school snack.
- 2 C flour
- 1/2 C sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
- 1 C buttermilk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp canola oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 C jam (I use all fruit grape spread)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line muffin tins with liners (makes 18-20).
- In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In another bowl stir peanut butter and buttermilk together until smooth. Add in the vanilla, oil, and eggs.
- Add peanut butter mixture to dry ingredients and stir until combined – it’s thick! Fold in the jam.
- Fill prepared muffin tins. Bake 15 – 17 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out cleanly.

Great winning combination for a kids muffin, they will be a sure fire hit!
That’s because they taste like cookies! 😉
I’m not a fan of pb&j sandwiches, but I’d gobble up these muffins in an instant! Such a yummy way to start the day 🙂
They taste like peanut butter cookies – no one could be upset by them! 😉
I love, love, love pbj muffins. Such a great breakfast! All schools in Michigan now start after Labor Day as a state law … gotta support tourism! Too bad that law wasn’t passed until I was just about done with school.
Haha! I went to a private school in FL that started after Labor Day so we would always go to Disney late August after the public schools started. Empty park – woohoo!
I have so many different flavors of jam in my fridge I could make a different batch for weeks. Great recipe.
You’re never too old for PB&J — who wouldn’t love this?!
Yum, Yum, Yum!
There is a reason why the classics are classics! Love PB & J. Love muffins. So I’d say you have a home run recipe. Thank you for sharing the scrumptiousness =)
I’d love to try these with different flavor jams!
Any would be delicious I’m sure!
I’m a sucker for PB&J, this looks great!
The you’ll love em!
A very cool rethinking of a classic flavor combination!
