Peanut Butter and Jelly Cups are a twist on the childhood favorite, made with a creamy peanut butter outside and a sweet strawberry jelly inside! They are a perfect healthy dessert and made with only five ingredients.

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries (can use fresh!)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

  2. Add coconut oil and maple syrup and stir until combined. Turn off heat.
  3. Pour 1 tbsp of peanut butter mixture in molds. Place in freezer.
  4. In separate saucepan, add strawberries and a splash of water. Simmer on medium-low heat.
  5. Once soft enough, mash with fork, turn off heat, and add in chia seeds.
  6. Place strawberry mixture in fridge for 10 minutes.
  7. After chilled, place one teaspoon of strawberry mixture on center frozen peanut butter cups.
  8. Add another tablespoon of peanut butter onto top of strawberry mixture and place in freezer.
