Creamy Or Chunky?

Are you ready to celebrate? Today is National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. I certainly hope that you have a jar handy, (providing, of course, that you don’t have an allergy).

I actually celebrate peanut butter nearly everyday. For the past several months, there have been very few days that my breakfast hasn’t been a Peanut Butter Mug Muffin. It’s easy, quick and yummy, and today, I’m sharing the recipe with you.

1/2 Tbsp Butter (I use Kerry Gold)
1 Egg
2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter (I use Smuckers Natural)
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
1-2 Tbsp sugar equivalent (I use Truvia)
Cinnamon to taste (optional)
Chopped pecans (optional)
Dark Chocolate chips (optional)
*Yes, that’s correct: no flour of any type in this recipe. It’s magic!

Melt butter in a mug in the microwave.

In a small, bowl stir/whisk egg completely, add all other ingredients and stir until well mixed.
Microwave for 90 seconds, allow to sit for another minute.

Slice, spread with butter and enjoy!

This song is very appropriate for today’s celebration. It’s by The Marathons, 1961. I was too young to remember it being played in its day, but I’ve heard it on oldies radio stations. And although the video is by the Georgia Peanut Commission, the first peanuts grown in the United States were grown here in my home state of Virginia, not far from where we live. (Sorry, Georgia.)

Will you be celebrating today?  Creamy or chunky?  What’s your favorite way to eat peanut butter?

  1. Crunchy! Love this recipe! Thank you so much for a great recipe! I am looking forward to making it!!! Happy Peanut Butter Day!

  2. I’ve always loved peanut butter…..and I often have it on a toasted bagel. Always “extra chunky”. Enjoy celebrating the day……….

    It looks great, and every time you mention it, I can almost taste it! And in answer to your question, neither! I don’t care for peanut butter, don’t like nuts. Ironic for the daughter of a peanut farmer.
    Off to make best Brunswick stew for miles this weekend. Everyone have a great weekend. And Dianna, maybe, just maybe next time we take a road trip, a little peanutbutter muffin with my name on it might make it’s way in the car!!

  4. Chunky! There’s another kind:) I can’t wait to try your recipe – maybe my treat tonight. I have a special affinity for peanuts – grew up on a peanut farm and have done my share of chores in the fields. Thanks for reminding me of some great memories with my Dad.

  5. Creamy, never chunky. I actually DO remember that peanut butter song from the early 60′! I was singing along with the words to that video. It’s a song I’d forgotten I knew, but all the words came right back to me. Thanks to my older sisters who constantly had music playing back then. 🙂

  6. They are good ! Especially with scrambled eggs & uncured bacon !

    I love extra crunchy peanut butter, although it’s been a while since I’ve had it. But thanks to your blog, I just ate a peanut butter banana sandwich:) While growing up, it was a major catastrophe if we ran out of two items: peanut butter or ketchup. And as others from Surry have said, we grew peanuts on our farm too – many fond memories:) I’m super excited to try the mug muffins. I have the feeling that I’ll become addicted… Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  9. Bill likes crunchy and I like creamy smooth. We alternate buying it so we can each enjoy.

  10. I’m gonna give this a try! I have been using Amaranth, coconut, and mixed nut flours to avoid the gluten in my mug muffin recipes, and am finally able to eat bread again (lots of fiber in mine). Oh, and I love Kerry Gold butter too!!! 😉
