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.

i just made mine.. and delicious doesnt even BEGIN to describe how good they are.

although ive always been very happy w ur recipes, i must admit, i was skeptical; pb and j sandwich ? mmm. pb and j in a cute little tart? ehh, cute idea, not so sure.

ALL my original worries were totally wrong. these are AMAZING. and one of my new fav recipes. plus, they’re easy, look adorable, and are easy to transport (ie work school road)

thanks for another one for my recipe file!!!!

these look yum! Think I can replace the spelt flour with whole wheat pastry flour or brown rice flour?

Angela July 22, 2010

i just made these and they are delicious!! i had to add a little more earth balance to get the crust to stick together a bit more. How do you get them out the muffin tin? i used a 12 cup muffin tin and i sprayed it with oil hoping this would help me get them out…..but the crust did stick to the tin and didn’t come out clean. how could one over come this? would silicone cups help?

My favorite protein bar is an amazing peanut butter and jam flavour so I know I will love these. And the mini size is perfect for a quick snack on a road trip too!
