If you can't get your kids to eat breakfast, this recipe will bring them to the table. At the very least, they'll grab one on their way out the door. Use crunchy or smooth—whichever you prefer—to make these protein-packed peanutty treats, and top with chopped peanuts. You can make a dozen in just 40 minutes, start to finish; but consider doubling the recipe, because they'll go quick.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • cup peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • cup unsalted peanuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add peanut butter and combine with a pastry cutter (or 2 forks) until it reaches a coarse, crumbly texture.

  4. Stir in milk, egg, and butter.

  5. Coat a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray (or insert liners), fill each muffin cup ¾-full with batter, and top with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts.

  6. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
