Tried ‘n’ True: A recipe for when the kids get home from school

I used this recipe when the kids got home from school. They were always hungry.

When I was little we lived next door to a lady we called Grandma Byrd. She was so sweet. Sometimes we would stop at her house when we got off the bus and then walk home. I guess everyone has eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Grandma Byrd would make muffins instead of sandwiches. This is also a good recipe for diabetics. Make sure you use sugar-free jam.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

1 cup flour

1 cup oat bran

1⁄2 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon soda

1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1⁄3 cup peanut butter

1 egg white

3 tablespoons honey

1 cup milk

1⁄4 cup seedless strawberry jam or your choice.

n Combine dry ingredients.

n In a small bowl beat milk, applesauce, peanut butter, egg white and honey on low speed until smooth.

n Stir in dry ingredients just until moist.

n Fill greased or foil lined muffin cups 1⁄2 full.

n Drop 1 teaspoon jam into each muffin.

n Cover with remaining batter.

n Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

n Cool 5 minutes.

Makes about 1 dozen muffins.
