Whole Wheat Peanut Butter & Jelly Muffins


Whole Wheat Peanut Butter & Jelly Cereal Muffins

Makes one dozen muffins

These muffins are moist, delicious, healthy, and portable, with a fun jelly surprise in the middle. Just like your favorite peanut butter and jelly sandwich — but more fun. :)



  • 2 cups puffed rice cereal (Erewhon Rice Twice cereal works well here)
  • 1 & ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup milk (or dairy free substitute)
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 12 teaspoons jam (any flavor — I used strawberry)


1) Preheat oven to 350.

2) In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients (cereal, flour, sugar, baking powder & soda). In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients, except for jelly.

3) Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing lightly until uniform.

4) In a cooking sprayed or greased muffin tin, fill each cup about half way with batter. Place a teaspoon of jam in each cup, then cover the jelly with the second half of the batter.

5) Bake 20 minutes; fork check to make sure they are done.

    Hi there!

    Can I substitute the twice rice cereal with rice krispy cereal? Just curious…
