If you’re a fan of classic flavor combinations like peanut butter and banana, then you’re in for a treat with these Jam-Filled Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins.

These delightful muffins are a perfect blend of sweet and nutty flavors with a surprise burst of fruity jam in the center.

Whether you’re making them for a special breakfast or as an anytime snack, they’re sure to be a hit with family and friends. Let’s get baking!


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup your favorite fruit jam or preserves


1. Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners or grease it lightly with cooking spray.

2. Combine Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. Mix Wet Ingredients

In another bowl, combine the mashed bananas, peanut butter, melted butter, milk, egg, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

5. Fill Muffin Cups

Fill each muffin cup about halfway with the muffin batter.

6. Add Jam Filling

Make a small indentation in the center of each muffin cup with a spoon. Place about a teaspoon of your favorite fruit jam or preserves into each indentation.

7. Top with More Batter

Cover the jam filling in each muffin cup with a little more batter, ensuring that the jam is mostly enclosed.

8. Bake

Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the muffin (not the jam filling) comes out clean.

9. Cool and Enjoy

Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once they’re cool, these muffins are ready to be enjoyed.

Jam-Filled Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins

Like most baked goods, these muffins will freeze well… so I recommend baking a batch over the weekend, wrapping them tightly in plastic wrap and then in sealable plastic bags, and storing them in the freezer. The night before you plan to eat one (or a few), take out however many muffins you want and by morning they will be defrosted and ready to devour.
