Single-Serve Peanut Butter Muffin 2 Ways

So the entire time I was making this recipe this was going through my head on repeat:

“Peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time…”

You could say that that song would be part of my theme song.

Of course the Fit Foodie Lee theme song would most likely be sung A Cappella and a mashup of classic rock, 90’s, and techno. Duh.

 This muffin though. IS just PERFECT.

When it’s that time of the month (yeah I said it!), I crave carbs like it’s my job. All I want to do is eat cereal and baked goods. I’ve learned that I just need to give my body what it’s craving in order to satisfy that craving. That’s why I L to the O to the V to the E single-serve recipes.

Uh…I made an entire e-book on them…and just lowered the price to $7.99! 

799As you can see from the title of this recipe- I created two different variations of the same muffin. One vegan (using a chia egg) and one not vegan (using an egg white).

I am no vegan connoisseur when it comes to baking, but I thought it would be an interesting project. Plus I know a lot of FFF readers enjoy vegan recipes! Let’s talk about how the two variations turned out.

The Non-Vegan Muffin turned out…

  • Fluffy
  • Moist
  • Perfectly Cooked

The Vegan Muffin turned out…

  • Dense
  • Chewy

Here is a better angel of the two. You can see how much taller the non-vegan muffin turned out. What an egg can do I tell you! They both had the same nummy flavor, just different texture and properties.

With a smear of peanut butter and some chocolate chips. #HAZZAH
