Temperature Controlled Apartment vs. Freshly Baked Muffins?

No contest. And I'm happy to report that fluffy, nutty, honey muffins just came out of my oven. Which has an actual fire inside it. Be impressed.

Bonus: I'm pretty sure about one third of me melted during this entire baking/photographing process so I think that means I'm good for another 6 muffins.

Ok, wait, stop.

I need to tell you a little story about why I have this amazing table.

I am a dork about finding old, textured, worn pieces to use as backdrops for my food photos.

Bjork would not let me take my old wooden board on the plane (and yes I seriously considered it for about 2 minutes) so here I am in the Philippines shopping for a piece of old wood that is not going to bring a termite infestation into our apartment.

At the market this weekend, I saw that table. Scratched, graffitied, at least 6,000 years old and so wonderful. It was piled high with colorful cloths and it was clearly not for sale.

I went over and asked the man if I could please buy this table. Wait, ma’am, he said. He ran around the corner and came back carrying a brand new, completely polished and totally spotless table. After several minutes of confusing translation between father, son, and ridiculous American girl explaining that yes, I actually wanted the OLD one, they agreed to let me buy it.

And now I can’t wait to set up my food photos on it. End of story.

Now please go make peanut butter and honey muffins and cover them with melted butter.

{Vegan} Peanut Butter & Honey Muffins


These peanut butter and honey muffins are easy to make and so delicious for breakfast or a snack. Fluffy, light, and perfect peanut butter honey flavor!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey (agave nectar if vegan)
  • 3/4 cup milk (almond, soy, etc. if vegan)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Add the peanut butter and oil and mix with a fork until crumbs form.
  3. Add the milk and honey and mix until just combined. Do not beat.
  4. Pour into muffin tins (about 3/4 full) and bake for 10-12 minutes, until tops are golden brown and spring back when you touch them.


I don't have temperature controls on my oven (eek!) so I am guessing about the exact temperature. It was medium-hot. 🙂 Muffins are easy - just keep an eye on them.

This recipe makes 6 muffins.

    These look so delicious and I can’t wait to try them out!

    Just wanted to let you know, the vegan substitute for honey is typically agave nectar. I’m not vegan myself, but I bake for lots of friends who are, and they wouldn’t want honey in their desserts.

      Good call. I’ve heard both sides of the honey/vegan debate – I’ll add a note about the agave. Thanks for the comment!

    Lol….I can just see you trying to explain wanting the old table! Funny.
    The muffins look fantastic! I’m going to see if I can tweak them to be gluten-free for my boys. Well, that’s more than a tweak;-)
    They look so good I think I’ll make a batch as is just for me too!

      They’re not sugar free, honey creates an even bigger insulin response in the body than table sugar

    These did come out of the tins “ok”, but would you recommend greasing the pan? I’m a recipe “reader” and follow to a T. But when I started filling the tins, I thought oops! it didn’t say to grease the pan…

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      Yeah, I put just one little dab of butter on the bottom of the muffin tins (but I was also using a nonstick so they came out easily). 🙂

    They look so yummy! Can’t wait to try them! I love that they only make 6–that is the perfect amount to be able to eat before they get stale.

    I love that these use honey! And what pretty muffins they are. Have you tried using recipes you’ve already made in the US with flour from the Philippines? I can’t use “normal” German flour for American recipes using all-purpose, so I was just wondering. Hopefully it works for you because it’s such a huge pain. Every non-whole grain cookie / crust recipe is like a science experiment.

    Oh and congratulations on your table. 🙂

      I told Bjork to hurry up and take a picture of me because I get about 2 seconds before it goes frizz-wild. 🙂 Hope you are well Sara!!

    Yaaaay! Quite a successful recipe coming from a finicky oven! I definitely am impressed! Peanut butter and honey are married in my brain…I went to their wedding, caught the bouquet – together, they make something very special and in a muffin, this is pure heaven!

    I love this…mostly because I can see you at the market trying to explain why you wanted the older table, and because it’s totally something I would do too. Love the muffins! (And the open flame oven…but maybe that’s because I don’t have to try and wrangle it.)
