Nutrient dense Chocolate Peanutbutter Jelly Cups! A combination of good fats in a bite size truffle, have them on hand to eat straight out of the fridge when the urge for something a little sweet hits you. Refined sugar free you don’t have to worry about putting weight on eating these, winner!!
I’m not American but there is something about the sound of peanut butter and jelly that sort of rolls off the tongue or maybe its from watching Sesame Street when I was little when they always had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I thought that was pretty strange to have jam and peanut butter together in a sandwich, its funny the things that make an impression on you when you are a kid.
Now I get it, not that Ive eaten sandwiches with this combo but in other combinations its really good!
- smoothies yes they taste really good
Any other suggestions?
The great thing about this recipe is that I had enough jam left over to make two more recipes:
- Healthy Berry Muffin recipe
- Berry Peanut butter smoothie
You could also use the jam on toast, pancakes whatever you fancy really. Warning though the jam is very thick as it needed to be for this recipe, not that its dangerous warning always sounds like a dangerous word, maybe I was in the mining industry to long.
This jam is packed full of goodness it has mixed organic berries (I used frozen) a bit of stevia to add sweetness and flax seeds to thicken it.
Did you know that flax seeds are high in omega 3 and boost a woman s progesterone levels? There are a lot of women that may need that to help with PMT, one wrong look or word and you may start searching for sharp pointy objects, I know Ive been there, and if I eat too much sugar that’s what happens its not much fun.
I use Mayver’s Peanut Butter with Coconut, I do not have any affiliates with this company, I just love it, so I always like to recommend products that I use personally. I can honestly eat it straight out of the jar its that good, but I have to be careful of how many nuts I eat (thats another story).
Now for the final ingredient, raw chocolate, the great thing with making raw chocolate is you can do a big batch and freeze it in cup fulls or whatever amounts you like and when a recipe calls for it just take it out to defrost doesn’t take long. Raw chocolate is very good for you it contains the superfood cacao where chocolate comes from. Did you know that cacao beans use to be more valuable than gold and were used as a trading commodity? Apart from that it contians coconut oil which is a really GOOD fat its good in so many ways I even use it as a moisturizer.
I will stop rambling now, thanks for reading and you will find the recipe for Chocoalte Peanutbutter Jelly Cups below.
