Peanut butter and jelly muffins are the perfect answer to a healthy snack!
These palatable peanut butter and strawberry jelly muffins are gluten free, delicious, quick and easy to make, full of protein and healthy real food nutrition.
- You can eat them for breakfast or as a in between meal healthy snack.
- They are perfect for kids and pack well in lunch boxes.
- I think they are a healthier choice than a protein bar.
- Since you can mix them by hand, they are quick and easy to make.
- They also freeze well and can be popped out of the freezer as needed.
For those on special diets, you can substitute ingredients to make these muffins dairy free,
oil free, egg free, or sugar free. I also prefer substituting almond butter for the peanut butter. I sometimes use coconut yogurt instead of Greek yogurt and coconut milk instead of dairy milk,
and use applesauce instead of olive oil. The muffins are versatile and lend themselves well to any and all substitutions.
