Peanut Butter Bran Muffins

I knew this would happen.

School is back in session. Homework is in full swing. I have two Cross Country meets a week and a social calendar that is slowly filling up. Oh yeah, and I still have to find time to bake and blog. It’s the only way I can stay sane. Duh! ;-)

“So what’s in store for this lovely little blog?” you ask. Nothing new really. Now that my weekdays are absolutely crazy most of my baking has to be done on the weekends. Gone are the days of spontaneously preheating the oven, pulling out the mixing bowls, and whipping up some delicious brownies at 11 o’clock in the morning. 

Now I have a written “To-Make” list that helps me plan what I’m going to make and when I am going to make it. Take last weekend for example, I scanned my list and decided to make Lofthouse-Style Frosted Cookies and bran muffins. The cookies were nice treats to have during the week and the muffins made great on-the-go breakfasts. Delicious, moist, and peanut buttery on-the-go breakfasts. :-)

Peanut Butter Bran Muffins

“Wholesome, high-fiber muffins that are great for fueling hectic school days. Spread them with a little peanut butter and you’ve got yourself a breakfast or snack worth waking up for!”

Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup wheat bran 
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 
  • ¼ cup agave
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup milk 
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a muffin pan with 12 paper baking cups, or spray bottoms with nonstick spray.
  2. In large bowl, combine, flour, bran, sugar, and baking powder, mix well. In medium bowl, combine agave, peanut butter, milk, and egg, blend well. Add all at once to dry ingredients, mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. (DO NOT OVERMIX!)
  3. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown and wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve muffins warm.  

Yield: 12 muffins
