Chicago kids will go wild for these muffins

Here is a fun twist on your usual PB & J sandwich: Turn it into a muffin with nutritious ingredients! I used whole wheat flour, a touch of ground flaxseeds for omega-3s and vanilla Greek yogurt for protein and sweetness.

Both my kids helped prepare these easy muffins. They mixed, measured, and carefully concentrated on adding the jelly to the middle. They turned out delicious for breakfast and an afternoon healthy snack.

Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!
