Number of Servings: 12


    non stick cooking spray
    1/2 cup natural peanut butter (creamy)
    1/2 cup carrot puree
    1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
    2 tbsp trans fat-free soft tub margarine spread
    1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
    1 large egg white
    1 cup ap flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup strawberry preserves


1. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with baking cups.
2. In large bowl, beat the peanut butter, carrot puree, sugar, and margarine 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, but do not overmix - there should be lumps in the batter.
4 .Divide the batter among the muffin cups 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 the muffins out onto a rack to cool. (Don't flip them over or the jelly will fall out! I learned this the hard way)
6. Store in an airtight container at room temp for up to 2 days, or wrap individually and freeze for up to 1 month.
