How do you make a PB & J combo healthier? Well I used real food ingredients and I added extra protein into these cups to help with post workout recovery and to balance out the fat a little more.
-90g Peanut butter (the natural runny kind)
-2 tspn plain protein powder
Optional: 1 or 2 tspn honey/maple syrup (I left this out but if you’ve a sweet tooth or are new to recipes without refined sugar/high sugar content then you can add it)
|Homemade chia berry jelly/jam|
-1 Tbspn chia seeds
-2 tspn plain/berry flavoured protein powder
|Raspberry chia refined sugar free “jelly” filling|
2-Add 1 Tbpsn to each muffin case then place onto a tray and into the freezer for 10mins to set
3-While this sets start on the jelly. Mash the raspberries really well with a fork then stir in the chia seeds and protein and leave this to set for 10mins
4-Remove the cases from the freezer and place 1 teaspoon of the berry jelly into the middle of each case, try to leave room at the edges so the top PB layer can encase the filling
5-Add another tablespoon of the PB mix to each case, covering the jelly until it’s all used up then place back into the freezer for 5-10mins before eating them.
Store leftovers in the fridge.
