How to Make Your Gluten Free Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. combine the softened butter, 3 large eggs, 1/2 cup of water and 1 TBSP vanilla extract. Then add the cupcake mix and make your batter. I mixed mine by hand with a whisk, but you can also use a mixer.

Once combined, fill your cupcake liners halfway. Then add a spoonful of your jelly to the middle, and cover with more batter. Repeat until all cupcakes are ready, and optionally add a swirl of jelly on the top of each cupcake. Bake for 20-22 minutes and let cool before icing.

For a healthier, easy icing, I simply mixed around 2 TBSP of nut butter (creamy is best) with sugar free powdered sugar to taste. I only frosted a few of the cupcakes, adding a jelly heart on top for fun. But these were equally delicious without any icing, or you could do a simple drizzle of nut butter on top.
