These PB and J cups are ridiculously simple to make and absolutely delightful. It starts with a peanut butter shell. Then comes the juicy berry chia jam stuffed inside. And then another layer of the creamy peanut butter shell. A little salty, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious. Refined sugar-free too!

Preparation

  1. Start by making the jam - place berries in a saucepan with a splash of water over medium heat. Once they are soft and have cooked down a bit, remove from heat. Mash the berries with a fork, stir in the chia seeds, and then place in the fridge to set.
  2. Melt the cacao butter/coconut oil using a double boiler method or in the microwave. Once melted, stir in the peanut flour and stevia.
  3. Arrange 6 mini liners on a plate. Spoon some of the 'peanut butter' into each liner, just a little more than enough to line the bottom. Try to get some up on the sides of the liners as well. Place in freezer for a few minutes or until they have set.
  4. Once set, fill each with a layer of the berry jam. Try to keep it in the middle of the cup. Then with the remaining 'peanut butter' cover the tops of the cups.
  5. Place in freezer for at least 10 minutes to set.
  6. Then enjoy!
  7. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

I tried making the shell with cacao butter and coconut oil and both worked perfect, so feel free to use whichever you have on hand! I will mention that the ones made with cacao butter had a bit of a richer flavour, but the coconut oil version was still awesome.
