E is for Elephant (Muffins!)

Isaac loves to help in the kitchen. It seems like every time I go into the kitchen, he runs to his step-stool and signs "please!" Already, he's able to pour ingredients, stir, and rinse dishes. Hopefully his motivation to help will continue as he grows!

Elephant Muffin Ingredients
-3/4 cup peanut butter
-1 cup milk
-1/4 cup melted butter
-2 well beaten eggs
-2 1/4 cups flour
-1/3 cup brown sugar
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-pinch of salt

1. Using a mixer, blend together the peanut butter, milk, melted butter, and eggs.

2. Slowly mix in the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.

3. Scoop into lined or greased muffin tins.
Please excuse the somewhat crinkled muffin cups. Isaac helped to put them in the muffin pan--great for hand/eye coordination and one to one correspondence, not so great for neat and tidy muffin cups!

4. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.


I think I'll add some choclate chips next time because I love peanut butter and chocolate together.
