together, these ingredients make a snack that’s nutritious and energizing.

making the bites

here’s how to make these delicious bites:

for the base:

  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup flax meal
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp dairy-free milk (as needed)

for the jam:

  • 10 ounces frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

instructions:

jam preparation:

  • in a medium saucepan, combine the frozen raspberries, water, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
  • bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  • once boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • in a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder with a bit of water to create a slurry.
  • slowly stir the arrowroot slurry into the simmering raspberry mixture, cooking for another 2-3 minutes until thickened.
  • remove from heat and let the jam cool slightly.
  • line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dollop the jam into small circles (about 1-2 teaspoons each).
  • place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 1 hour, or until the jam circles are firm.

base preparation:

  • in a food processor, combine the medjool dates, peanut butter, flax meal, hemp seeds, oat flour, and vanilla extract.
  • pulse until the mixture comes together into a thick dough. if the mixture is too dry, add dairy-free milk one tablespoon at a time until the dough is pliable.
  • take about a tablespoon of dough and flatten it into a small cookie shape.

assembling the bites:

  • once the jam circles are firm, place one jam circle in the center of each flattened dough piece.
  • gently bring up the sides of the dough to encase the jam, rolling it into a ball.
  • repeat until all the dough and jam are used up.

why freeze the jam

freezing the jam before assembling the bites is a crucial step.

if the jam isn’t firm, it will be messy and difficult to work with.

freezing allows you to easily place the jam in the center of the dough and roll it into a ball without the jam oozing out.

it makes the assembly process much cleaner and ensures that each bite has a perfect jam-filled center.

storage

store the peanut butter and jam bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

for longer storage, you can keep them in the freezer.

they make a great grab-and-go snack that you can enjoy anytime you need a quick pick-me-up.

these energizing homemade peanut butter and jam bites are a tasty, nutritious, and convenient snack that you’ll love.

give them a try and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors and textures, all while fueling your body with wholesome ingredients.

    1/4 cup flax meal
    1/4 cup hemp seeds
    1 cup oat flour
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    5 tbsp dairy-free milk (or more as needed)

    for the jam:

    *you can use any store bought too
    10 ounces frozen raspberries
    3/4 cup water
    1 tbsp maple syrup
    1 tbsp arrowroot powder
    1 tsp cinnamon


  • glaze

  • 1/2 cup lakanto powdered sweetener
    2 tbsp powdered peanut butter
    2-4 tbsp dairy-free milk (such as almond, soy, or oat milk)

Directions

  • in a medium saucepan, combine the frozen raspberries, water, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
    bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  • once boiling, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 7-10 minutes, stirring periodically.
    in a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder with a bit of water to create a slurry.
  • slowly stir the arrowroot slurry into the simmering raspberry mixture, cooking for another 2-3 minutes until thickened. remove from heat and let the jam cool. i prefer to cool mine overnight in the fridge.
  • line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dollop the jam into small circles (about 2 teaspoons each).
    place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 1 hour, or until the jam circles are firm. you can also cut them half if they’re too big.
  • in a food processor, combine the medjool dates, peanut butter, flax meal, hemp seeds, oat flour, and vanilla extract. pulse until the mixture comes together into a thick dough. if the mixture is too dry, add dairy-free milk one tablespoon at a time until the dough is pliable.
  • take about a tablespoon of dough and flatten it into a small cookie shape.

  • once the jam circles are firm, place one jam circle in the center of each flattened dough piece.
    gently bring up the sides of the dough to encase the jam, rolling it into a ball. repeat until all the dough and jam are used up.

  • in a medium bowl, whisk together the lakanto powdered sweetener and powdered peanut butter until well combined. add 2 tablespoons of dairy-free milk to the dry mixture and stir until smooth. if the glaze is too thick, add more milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency.

  • once the glaze is smooth and pourable, it’s ready to use. drizzle over your peanut butter and jam bites or any other baked goods for a delicious finishing touch.

  • store the peanut butter and jam bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for longer storage, just thaw before eating! enjoy as a quick, energizing snack!
