  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • cup all-purpose flour


  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup smooth peanut butter, melted may use crunchy if you prefer
  • ¾ cup milk I used 2%
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 12-count muffin pan with paper liners or spray well with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside
  • To prepare streusel topping, in a medium bowl, add brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, and flour. Stir to thoroughly combine. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat eggs, melted peanut butter, milk, melted butter, brown sugar, and vanilla with a hand mixer or stand mixer with fitted paddle attachment until creamy, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Gradually add flour mixture to peanut butter mixture, beating until just combined.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling about 3/4 full. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of jam or jelly into the center of batter in each muffin cup. Sprinkle prepared streusel evenly over each muffin.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of muffin comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and let cool completely on a wire rack. Muffins will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
