PB and J Fat Bombs

Remember this schoolyard chant?  Peanut, peanut butter. Jelly.  Peanut, peanut butter. Jelly.  I used to love saying this rhyme with my students!

It's National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!  The average American will eat over 2000 PBJs before graduating from high school!  Peanut butter was considered gourmet food in the early 20th century.  Both the Good Housekeeping magazine and Table Talk magazine published a peanut butter sandwich recipe in 1896!

According to the National Day website, the first PB and J may have been served in 1901 by Julia Davis Chandler.  In the 1920s the price of peanut butter went down and the sandwich became popular with children.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Fat Bombs

Peanut Butter and Jelly has come a long way since its early roots.  PBJ is a flavor profile that is recognized by most Americans.  To celebrate, I made up some PB and J Fat Bombs and boy, are they good! I make these from sugar-free jelly to make them more keto.

    Do the chocolate chips actually get used? I see them in the ingredients list but not the recipe instructions.

    1. Updated! You can add them to the batter, but I don't typically do that. I removed the ingredient.
