Apple Peanut Butter Mini Muffins

There aren't many foods I love more than peanut butter. I can't remember a time I didn't have it in the house. With apples being so cheap these days, I pick up several bags every time I go grocery shopping. The classic pairing of PB and apples makes these muffins so delicious and the buttermilk keeps them moist. Served for breakfast or a snack, these kid friendly muffins are sure to be a hit. Note: if you can't have peanut butter, simply substitute any alternate nut butter or sunflower seed butter.


1. Preheat oven to 375. Coat 3 mini muffin tins with cooking spray. 
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. 


3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the grated apple, buttermilk, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla. 


4. Add wet ingredients and the chia seed to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. 


5. Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until tops are lightly golden brown. Allow muffins to rest for 10 minutes in the pan, then remove and cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
