Easy peanut butter muffin recipe with minimal sugar for toddlers and adults alike



  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (I use all-natural peanut butter by Pic’s)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 23 tbsp coconut sugar (or regular sugar)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder (optional – or use natural vanilla)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (atta)
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F / 180C
  2. Prepare your muffin pan by either greasing or lining, as required
  3. In a wide bowl, add peanut butter, milk, cinnamon or vanilla, salt, baking powder, and sugar
  4. Mix well until all ingredients are combined
  5. Add the flour and fold in without mixing too much
  6. Pour into muffin pan until each hole is 3/4 full
  7. Bake in pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes or a skewer inserted into the muffins comes out clean
  8. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container
  9. Keeps at room temperature for two days and in the refrigerator for 5 days


  • It’s generally advised to introduce your baby to allergens like peanuts before they turn one and to do so in a careful manner
  • This recipe is best for kids above who have been introduced regular dairy and nuts in the past with no allergies or issues
  • If your peanut butter has added salt, you can skip that in the recipe
  • If you use regular peanut butter like Skippy or JIF, you can try to omit sugar since they tend to be sweet
  • These muffins don’t come out very sweet at all, if you want them to be more “regular”, then add 1/2 cup sugar to the batter instead of 2-3 tablespoons
