Its NUTS !!!!!!!

Peanut Butter Muffins
Gluten Free and Vegan

Yes I’ve gone totally nuts !!!! As you can tell from the title so there is no hidden ingredients here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

One of The Cauldron Apprentice Apprentice Favourite things is peanut butter !!

So I have had to address that matter in a muffin

This is the very grown up version !!! But i will put some picture of her variation in the photo round up after the recipe

i’m still getting my head round the peanut butter revolution that has happened over the years , I can assure you when I was a nipper it was hardly a thing , that’s how ancient I am πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

But these muffins have certainly wowed me, the right intensity and I beg you do not leave the glaze off if you are an adult, it takes it to a whole new level !!!

( as an adult πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ)

So come on lets go NUTS !!!!!

Now you know you want some , dont you !!!!
