These are EASY to make (just blend it all in the blender!) and super NUTRITIOUS muffins. (1 muffin = 75% of your child’s protein needs for the DAY!).
The peanut butter and eggs in this recipe provide zinc, iron and vitamin E, which are all important for healthy brain development. Because the muffins are high in healthy fats (from the peanut butter), they will keep you full for a looooong time. The first time I made them, I ate 3 muffins….and had no appetite the rest of the day! Just make sure you don’t serve them too close to dinner😉!
1 ⅓ cups peanut butter
⅔ cup canned pumpkin
⅓ cup maple syrup (real or artificial), can sub honey or white sugar
2 Tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
⅛ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup chocolate chips (optional, but the recipe is much yummier with them!)
Preheat oven to 375
Put everything EXCEPT CHOCOLATE CHIPS in the blender. Blend on high until completely blended.
Stir in chocolate chips
Spray 12 muffin cups with non stick spray
Fill muffin cups evenly (about ¾ full)
Bake for 20 minutes
I don’t know how well they store because we eat them ALL as soon as they come out of the oven!
