Weelicious' PB&J Cupcakes

I bought myself this lunch cookbook from Weelicious, and it has been a great resource to inspire me to make better lunches for my kids.  Not everything has been a hit, but a lot of things have, like cheesy waffle sandwiches, and this recipe for pb&j cupcakes.  They are more like muffins, and they are pretty healthy.  For 1 muffin, the calories are 195, and they make a great lunch box sandwich/muffin. Here's what I did, and I got 18 regular sized muffins from the recipe.

1 c flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c smooth peanut butter
1/4 c canola oil
2 t vanilla
2 large eggs
1 c milk
1/2 c jam of choice

Preheat the oven to 350 ad spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Whisk together the flours, baking powder, and brown sugar.
Whisk together the peanut butter, oil, vanilla, eggs, and milk. 
Pour dry ingredients into wet ones and stir until just combined. 
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full, and bake for 20-25 minutes for full sized muffins.  Cool, then when ready to serve, cut the muffins in half and spread on jam.  Serve or send in the lunchbox :).
Aren't they fun looking?  Owen and I gave them a 9, and Noah gave them a perfect 10.  He said they are his favorite muffins ever :).
