I absolutely love the combination of peanut butter and jam making these the perfect sweet treat for me.

These delicious squares are really simple to make and require just four ingredients! They do not need baking and can be whipped up in five minutes before placing them in the freezer to set.

I usually use individual brownie trays to make these but this recipe is really versatile in the sense that you can use whatever tray or mould you have to hand. I like to add slices of fresh strawberry to the top of these before freezing but this is completely optional. I use my Homemade Chia Jam recipe for these but you could use shop bought if required.

Once these have set you can either transfer them to the fridge or keep them in the freezer. Personally I prefer a firmer texture so keep these in the freezer and just allow a few minutes to thaw out before serving.

Method

  1. Combine the almond flour, maple syrup and 60g of the peanut butter in a mixing bowl until a sticky mixture forms
  2. Scrape the mixture out into the mould and press down using your fingertips, ensuring they are tightly packed down and smooth on top
  3. Dollop the remaining peanut butter over the top of the first layer out and use the back of the spoon to spread it out in a thick and even layer
  4. Repeat this process with the jam, making sure the top is smooth
