Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 cup low-fat milk
1/3 cup (approximately) fruit spread or jelly

Heat oven to 350F. Spray muffin tin with non-stick vegetable spray or line with baking cups. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar and baking powder. In another bowl, beat peanut butter and egg until smooth. Add milk a little at a time, stirring after each addition. Pour peanut butter mixture over dry Ingredients; fold in with a rubber spatula just until dry Ingredients are moistened. Batter will be stiff. Spoon 2 scant tablespoons batter into each muffin cup and smooth the surface out to the edge of the cup. Then top each muffin with a heaping teaspoon of fruit spread; cover with 2 more tablespoons of batter.

Bake 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Makes 12 muffins.
