Makes 8 Large Muffins:
(or 16 mini muffins)

1 cup Flour Blend (or half all-purpose flour and half whole grain flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup lowfat milk
3/4 cup Sneaky Chef Creamy No-Nut Butter
8 heaping teaspoons favorite jam

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper liners.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until well combined, then whisk in the oil, milk, and No-Nut Butter. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until flour is just moistened (don’t over-mix or the muffins will be dense).

Scoop about two tablespoons of batter into the large muffin cups until half full. Place a heaping teaspoon of jam in the center of each muffin. Cover the jam with another 2 tablespoons or so of batter, filling the cups just over the top. If you’re using mini-muffin cups, scale back quantities to fit into the smaller sized cups.

Bake for 20 to 24 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
