One of my favorite muffins recipes to make is Jelly Muffins. This recipe brings back fond memories for me. As you know I taught high school Foods classes (Home Economics) for 11 years before leaving my career to stay home with Peyton. This is one of my students favorite food labs that we did!
They loved to make and eat these delicious muffins. In fact this is an affordable solution to making fruit muffins because Jelly costs far less than fresh or even frozen fruit plus they are delicious! The kids could make a variety of flavors in the same batch which made them all happy. These muffins are perfect for breakfast, brunch or snacking!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

- Fill cups 1/3 full.
- Place 1 teaspoon any flavor jam, jelly, fruit spread or preserves in muffin tin.

- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 minute before removing from pan. Serve warm.
I am in love with the Smucker's new Natural fruit spread. It is made with a few ingredients and NO high fructose corn syrup or artificial coloring. I like when I read a label and there are only a few ingredients and I know what they ALL are! Plus it is Non GMO and low in calories. This makes my Jelly Muffins a healthier choice. Another tips is to replace your oil with applesauce for a more heart healthy and lower fat choice.
After making my Jelly Muffins I decided to package them up in a basket and deliver them with a jar of Smucker's Natural Fruit Spread with the recipe attached to one of my friends who I know is having a difficult time right now. I hope that my "special delivery" was able to provide her a little Sunshine!
We love to pay it forward! It is a great feeling and you can do so without spending a lot of money from your family budget. This Jelly Muffins Recipe is an affordable solution to making fruit muffins because Jelly costs far less than fresh or even frozen fruit plus they are delicious!
