Maple Molasses Peanut-Butter Muffins with bottle

Wholesome Maple + Molasses Peanut Butter Muffins

Crafted from pantry staples, our Wholesome Peanut Butter Oatmeal Muffins are a practical solution for conserving ingredients. Substituting traditional butter with creamy peanut butter, these muffins offer a fresh take on familiar favourites.

With a light, tender crumb and a subtle chewiness, they strike a harmonious balance between the comforting appeal of a cookie and the satisfying wholesomeness of a muffin. Plus, they’re not overly sweet—much less sweet than store-bought muffins—making them a delightful treat for any time of day. Peanut butter and molasses have always been a fantastic combo, so we decided to experiment with it in a muffin recipe. With this recipe, we invite you to savour the familiar comforts of home while indulging in a wholesome treat that is both satisfying and delicious.

    Sure would like a substitute for the maple and molasses. I could guess but that could also ruin my muffins.🤔
