I don’t know about you, but I don’t think there is a better tasting combination than peanut butter and jam. The flavours just have a way of complimenting each other so well.

The other day, when I was looking to make an indulgent yet healthy breakfast treat, I knew that I had to have these ingredients in my morning snack.

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jam Glo Bites

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance (vegan margarine)
  • 1/4 cup sucanat (brown sugar probably works)
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1/4 c milled flax
  • 1 t cinnamon

Filling:

  • ½ t baking powder
  • 1 t vanilla
  • ¼ cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ¼ cup cane sugar
  • ½ cup PB
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • Jam
  • Dark Chocolate chips (optional)

Directions: Mix crust together with a hand blender in a medium sized bowl. Place approx 1 tsp of crust dough into pre-greased mini muffin tin (or use 1 T of crust in a regular muffin tin). Press down to create a mini crust making sure the crust comes up on the sides a bit. Add filling, filling the tin about half only, and top with jam and chocolate or carob chips. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Makes 24 mini cups.

Note. You can also experiment by putting the jam on top of the crust but before the filling layer. I would suggest not mixing the jam into the filling though because the taste sort of gets lost in all of the other ingredients.

Recipe inspiration from here.

The crust turned out absolutely delicious. I think this is one of the best tasting crusts I have ever made!

In the photo above, I used a mini tart pan. I think this was my favourite size, although the mini ones were super cute.

These tasted out of this world delicious!!! I am seriously addicted. They make such a fun breakfast treat on days when you just aren’t feeling the regular stuff or when you want to make something special on the weekend. When they bake in the oven the whole house smells just wonderful too! Just delicious.

To those of you wondering what WWPF is, it’s Whole Wheat Pastry Flour. :)

Mmm, peanut butter and jelly….. would you believe that my boyfriend JUST realized how good they were together? He’d gone his whole childhood convincing himself he didn’t like it – but he never gave it a chance! Sillysilly! It would be awesome to win the chia seeds – they are so pricey!

My goodness! I cannot WAIT until you start shipping to the US. You do realize you’re going to have to make a copy of yourself as soon as you open up to us, right???

Also, random: I’d love to create a login for your site so my picture shows up, but I can’t find a “register” link, only the “login” link if you already have an account. Help?

P.S. I hope I win the chia seeds this time!
