Ingredients:

Nonstick Cooking Spray

1 cup golden/brown sugar

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used honey almond butter)

1 large egg white

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 12 cup muffin tin with liners or spray

4. Divide batter into 12 muffin cups and bake until toothpick comes out clean — about 15 minutes.  Be sure to check before bringing out of the oven.

**SOME HINTS**

–Use a mini-muffin tin b/c these are soo good, it is easy to overeat them.  It would have been better to have them smaller and not eat as much.

– Add choc. chips and white choc. chips to the batter about 1/4 cup.  It makes a huge difference with the kids.

– Add some applesause or avocado to the batter to make it a little thinner and get some good fats into them.
