Peanut Butter, Jelly and carrots??

It's Friday and that means it's time to Fool Your Family with another sneaky recipe! PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY MUFFINS

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup carrot puree
1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 large egg white
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low-sugar strawberry, blueberry or grape preserves

1. Preheat over to 350 and coat a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, beat the peanut butter, carrot puree, sugar and butter with a wooden spoon until well combined. Stir in the yogurt and egg white.

3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir until just combined - there should be some lumps in the batter.

4. Fill muffin cups with batter and drop a spoonful of preserves on top of each.

5. Bake until the tops of the muffins are lightly browned and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center, 20 - 25 minutes. Turn muffins out onto a rack to cool.
