Peanut butter and jam in a single bite? Heck yah, I’m in! These mini muffins were moist, delicious and with a big boost of peanut butter flavor. A huge hit with my kids, but they certainly brought out the kid in me as I loved them too. It didn’t take long for the batch to be gone, so next time I think I’ll double it, and freeze a batch.

If you haven’t worked with peanut protein or powdered peanut butter (like PB&Me or PB2  yet), I highly recommend you give it a try. I really love the Lean Body For Her Peanut Protein and there really are a lot of applications for it. I’ve made quite a few things with it. The No-Bake Double Peanut Butter Protein BarsPeanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars and No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars. Not only is it great in shakes, its great to put in recipes. I like how much peanut butter flavor it adds, without having to add boatloads of peanut butter to a recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I love peanut butter and its a healthy fat, but copious amounts of it wouldn’t work in these light and addictive muffins.

I’m vowing to make more muffin recipes mini-sized as they are so much easier to pack and so much easier for the kids to eat. For myself I’ll eat 3-4 mini muffins vs. a typical sized muffin. If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can of course put these in a regular muffin tin, you’ll just have to increase the cooking time. My best guess would be 17-18 minutes but I’d check at around the 15 minute mark.

If you’ve got some peanut butter fans in your house, I really hope you give these a try. I think they’ll definitely be a hit! The inspiration for this recipe is from my older daughter. I was brainstorming recipe ideas with her, and it was totally her idea to do peanut butter and raspberry muffins. I may have a budding food blogger on my hands!

These cute bite-sized mini muffins pack a big peanut butter punch with a nice hint of raspberries. Think peanut butter and jam, but in a muffin. Great for little hands, and adults love them too.
