Helpful hints

  • If you prefer use reduced-fat peanut butter. This change adds approximately 5 grams of carbohydrate and lowers fat by 3 grams per serving.
  • These muffins are a tasty way to add extra protein in a snack or meal.
  • Peanut butter adds more potassium and phosphorus but is a great source of protein. Ask your dietitian if you need to add a phosphate binder when you eat this muffin for a snack.
