Peanut butter and jelly… A magical combo that reminds most people of their childhood. Not me! I didn’t grow up with it. In fact, I think I was in my early teenage years when I first tried peanut butter and I didn’t like it at all! My sister brought me a jar as a souvenir from her trip to Europe and it was a rippled mixture of chocolate and peanut butter. I remember clearly how much I loved the chocolate part, but tended to skip the peanut butter layers. I think it was because it wasn’t sweet and my taste buds were so used to sweet flavors at the time.
Talking about treats, here’s a twist on the classic pb&j in the form of fudge bites, made with a handful of wholesome ingredients and no refined sugar. You can substitute the peanut butter with almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or any other nut/seed butter of your choice and I’m sure it will still taste as delicious (if not more). Enjoy!
