If you’ve seen even one of my other recipes, you know that keeping with tradition is not my forte. The humble peanut and jelly is no exception. This classic, childhood favorite gets a facelift with these Peanut Butter and Jelly Filled Dough Bites.

These guys taste like a ball of nostalgia, with a healthier twist. Rather than white bread, the dough is made from mainly oat flour and Greek yogurt. Oats are a great source of carbohydrates and fiber. Greek yogurt, along with the other recipe ingredients like the peanut flour, and chia seeds in the chia seed jam, provides satiating protein.

They’re also refined sugar free. They’re sweetened with a bit of coconut sugar. The majority of their sweet quality comes from the all natural chia seed jam I used. Feel free to sub this for any jam or jelly of your choice. If you haven’t made chia seed jam though, I highly recommend it. It’s lower in sugar, extremely customizable and can be used anywhere a store bought jam would be. Use it on, I don’t know, a regular ol’ pb&j?
