Peanut Butter Muffin Recipe

With Honey - Extra-Special Treat

Favorite Restaurant Muffin Recipe

If you like peanut butter, you'll love this Peanut Butter Muffin Recipe.  They are simply irresistible.

Eat them plain or add butter and / or more honey or a favorite jam. And these muffins are wonderfully delicious and comforting when served warm.

The muffins are a quick treat in the morning when you are too short of time to eat a full breakfast.

These muffins are also popular with children, so put one in their lunch box. They'll love you for it. Or sneak one to your neighbor - they will volunteer to mow your lawn! (See note below).

I like these muffins, as do the restaurant guests, but only my husband sings to me when I make them! "Honey Dew" (or is it "Do"?) "…make those muffins. Make them for me. I'll do the dishes ...I'll mow the lawn. Just please make those muffins ...Honey do." I know, he can't write music but he loves these muffins. :-)

IMPORTANT Note: Some children, as well as adults, for whatever reason(s) are very allergic to peanuts and peanut bi-products. Please check with guests BEFORE making or serving.

Peanut Butter Muffin Recipe

Preparation time: 25 minutes. Makes 12 - 16 muffins


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup honey
Note: Lightly coat the measuring cup with a little vegetable oil and then pour in the honey so it will not stick when you pour it out.

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups stirred all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted chopped peanuts



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Grease a muffin pan or use paper liners in your muffin pan

Note: Always have the oven preheated to the correct temperature or the muffins will not bake correctly. Also check for doneness at the earliest suggested time as ovens may vary in temperature.

  • In a large bowl combine the eggs, honey, vegetable oil, buttermilk, peanut butter and vanilla
  • In another bowl combine the stirred flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chopped peanuts and blend well
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients but do not over mix or the muffins will not bake right
  • Scoop the mixture into greased or paper lined muffin pan, filling only 2/3 full for each muffin
  • Bake in preheated 400 degree F oven for 18-20 minutes
  • Muffins are done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean

Enjoy your Peanut Butter Muffin and the company of those you share it with! You will share, won't you?


Did you know? In the United States, the US Department of Agriculture initiated a program to encourage agricultural production and human consumption of peanuts in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

George Washington Carver developed hundreds of recipes for peanuts during his tenure in the program. In 1941, Time magazine dubbed Carver a "Black Leonardo."
