See the ingredients below!
Here’s What You Need

- All-natural jam or a sugar free keto jam
- All-natural maple syrup or Liquid Stevia Drops
- Vanilla Extract
Peanut Butter and Jelly Fat Bombs
Peanut Butter Layer (bottom layer)
- 2/3 cup all-natural peanut butter creamy
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup maple syrup or 1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia for keto option
- 1/4 cup peanuts chopped (+more for topping)
- sea salt to taste
Jelly Layer (top layer)
- 1/4 cup jelly or preserves any kind will work! or keto friendly jam
- First, line muffin tin with nonstick cupcake liners and set aside.
- Prepare the peanut butter layer by placing peanut butter, melted coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup, and chopped peanuts into a medium-size bowl and mix until combined.
- Using a tablespoon as your scoop, scoop a heaping tablespoon of batter into each muffin liner. Repeat until you've evenly distributed into 12 liners. Set aside.
- Prepare jelly drizzle by placing jelly into a small bowl and microwaving for 30 seconds to a minute. Stir.
- Carefully drizzle 1 teaspoon of jelly over the top of each peanut butter cup. Use a fork or toothpick to swirl the jelly into the peanut butter.
- Top with additional chopped peanuts and place in freezer for 20 minutes or until firm.
Tips & Notes
- If your batter isn't easily poured into the cupcake tin, add more melted coconut oil. You do not want your batter to be too thick and sometimes thickness is dependent on how oily your nut butter is.
- Option to replace maple syrup with honey or liquid stevia.
- Option to replace peanut butter with any other nut butter such as cashew or almond.
- Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Would substituting butter for the coconut oil work? I’m allergic to coconut oil.
Can you make this without the coconut oil?
Hi! I wouldn’t suggest it, as the coconut oil is what makes these peanut butter cups!
PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIIIIIIIME! I wish I enjoyed more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as a kid rather than grilled cheese sandwiches, but hey, both did the job. Definitely have a stronger love for peanut butter than I did as a child, so I have to make up for lost times! Would this recipe also work with sunflower seed butter? It’s all I have right now so I’ll have to buy crunchy peanut butter later!
It absolutely would! Any kind of nut butter <3
what a creative idea, fun appetizer serving too, am impressed also by the lower calorie count, if you stick to one or two, thank you for this recipe!
