The good news is you don’t need to be a peanut butter snob to make healthy peanut butter and jelly snacks.
The only thing that you need to know is how to make them.
I’ve written about healthy snack making before, so I won’t go into that here.
But if you’re going to be making these at home, then you need the basic ingredients you need for making these snacks.
Here’s everything you need: 1 package of peanuts, 2 cups of water, salt, sugar, and eggs.
Mix all the ingredients together until everything is incorporated.
Take a large cookie scoop (I used a 1/2 inch cookie scoop) and scoop out the peanut butter into the scoop.
Put it in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for 15-20 seconds, and stir until smooth.
Put the scoop back in the microwave and stir again until smooth again.
Add another cookie scoop to the bowl and microwave for another 15-15-second period.
Once it’s done microwaving for 15 seconds, remove it from the microwave, and then stir in the remaining peanut butter.
Make sure you stir the bowl well before adding any liquid.
You can add as much liquid as you want.
You may need to add some liquid if you have more than 2 cups or so of peanut butter in the bowl.
It’s okay if the peanut bits aren’t quite cooked enough.
Sprinkle the peanut chunks with salt and pepper and then sprinkle them with a little bit of sugar.
Place the peanut pieces in a small bowl and cover with water to absorb the liquid.
You’ll want to pour it into the bowl as much as possible.
It will get soggy and hard to pour, so make sure it’s not all the way filled.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use them.
They’re great for the holidays, too!
You’ll need to keep them in the fridge for at least 3 days before you can use them again.
They’re also great for a few days before a big pot of them is on your stovetop.
It’s not necessary to refrigerate them, just make sure you put them in a cool, dark place.
Here are some of my favorites!
