    PBJ Cupcakes.

    The biggest study yet recently showed people who ate nuts every day were 20 percent less likely to die from heart disease, cancer, or any other cause than people who did not eat them. Some nuts, such as almonds, are also very low in acid. Knowing all of this, you can feel less guilty about eating these cupcakes.

    2 cups brown sugar

    1/2 cup butter or shortening

    1 cup peanut or almond butter

    2 eggs

    1 1/2 cup milk

    1 tsp. vanilla

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 tsp. baking soda

    pinch of salt

    1 cup jelly or preserves of your choice



    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.


    In a large bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter, and peanut or almond butter. Mix in the eggs, milk and vanilla. Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.  Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the cupcakes spring back to the touch. Let cool on a rack.


    After the cupcakes are cool, spread a thin layer of your favorite jelly or preserves on each. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
