Much better than a peanut butter sandwich – believe me! Especially for little people in your life. Here is the recipe and I do hope you will enjoy it!


2-1/4 cups of flour

1/2 cup of white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 3/4 cups of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 cups of fresh strawberries, cut into small pieces plus strawberries cut into halves for topping
  • Strawberry jam
  • Vanilla Sugar


I usually take more pictures than this – somehow I started baking without the every ready camera handy – but I remembered that most of you enjoy seeing the process in pictures  so I kid of caught up 🙂

First – get all your ingredients organized and in front of you – as I always say, it makes your task much easier.

Mix all dry ingredients  – except the 1/2 cup of sugar – together in a large bowl

Cut in your peanut butter and butter until the mixture is crumbly – like an oatmeal

Gently fold in your cup up strawberries

Add eggs, mixed into your milk and stir well, until just combined

Fill your muffin cups placed into the baking pan about half full

Carefully spoon in about 1/2 teaspoon of strawberry jam onto each muffin

Top with more batter to cover the jam

Place 1/2 strawberry on top of each muffin and sprinkle with vanilla sugar

Bake at 375F for about 20 -25 minutes or until your muffins turn golden brown

Alternatively – you can skip the 1/2 strawberry and vanilla sugar topping, bake your muffins and while hot, brush them with melted strawberry jam or jelly and sprinkle chopped peanuts  over the top.


Hope you will enjoy this recipe – please send me your comments, suggestions and experiences – your input is always welcomed and much appreciated
