Homemade & Healthy: Peanut Butter & Jelly

This healthy Peanut Butter and Jelly recipe is quick, easy, cost efficient and healthy!

Peanut Butter

Directions: Place all ingredients into a processor bowl and blend until smooth.

TIP: If you want chunky peanut butter, mix until smooth, then add more peanuts at the end and lightly grind. You can also add extra honey for sweetness.

Ingredients Needed:

– 16 oz. Roasted Nuts

– 1 tsp. Kosher Salt

– 1 1/2 tsp. Honey

– ¼ C Peanut Oil

Strawberry Apple Jam

Directions: Take washed and hulled strawberries and blend with apple chips until smooth. Take mixture and cook stove top on medium heat, until it reduces to a thick syrup and reaches the temperature of 220 degrees (About 5 minutes or so). Then add lemon juice to brighten flavor.

TIP: Use the plate test to ensure that it is not runny. Place a plate in the freezer until it becomes cold then place 1 tsp. of jelly on plate. If it stays, you have nice jelly! If it is runny then it needs to cook longer.

Ingredients Needed:

– 3 lbs. Strawberries

– 6 cups Agave Nectar

– 2 cups Apple Chips

– 1/4 C  Lemon Juice
