Healthy PB + J Cups

A thick layer of chocolate piled with peanut butter and swirled with raspberry preserves, this healthy peanut butter cups recipe is so easy to make and only require a few simple ingredients!

Ready your sweet tooths y’all because it’s about to be a chocolate, peanut butter, and jelly party!

Reeses are by far in my top favorite candies, but it’s a real drag they contain so many gross ingredients. Not only are these homemade peanut butter cups so easy to make, but the addition of a jelly swirl also makes them irresistible!

We’re going to call em’ energy bites today.

I loveeee me some energy bites. They are the perfect snack to keep on hand to keep hunger at bay. They are great for a pre-workout or post-workout fuel, snacking on the go, or just a little sweet treat to feed your sweet tooth.

What I love best is the ingredients are cheap and simple, but also this recipe is no-bake and naturally plant-based.

It’s no secret France pretty much dominates the dessert and baking world. I’m loving all the sweets and baked goods Paris has to offer! This recipe is not a typical one for the Mindful Avocado because I typically do not cook or bake with eggs.

However, this recipe is extra special because I made it in France with this adorable family I met. They have two daughters and they were just as excited as I was to make a recipe and take photos for my blog.

We decided on chocolate mousse because it is a French classic, and it’s chocolate! (who doesn’t love chocolate?!)
