Peanut Butter and Jam Slice

by Nurse Nicky March 17, 2017

Who doesn't like a good peanut butter and jam combo? I have yet to meet anyone!

Here is something I put together for those moments when a plain old PB & J sammie just won't do.

This slice is not only refined sugar free, it's also grain free and vegan!  It's easy to make and has a definite wow factor.


Makes: 8 slices

Time: 20 mins, plus 2 hours in fridge




  • 2 cups berries (I used frozen raspberries)
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 Tabs rice malt syrup (maple syrup or honey)


  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup of peanut (or almond butter)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 Tabs rice malt syrup (maple syrup or honey)



1. Place berries in a saucepan and heat until bubbling gently, add sweetener of choice (if using) and chia seeds. Stir to combine then transfer chia jam to the fridge while continuing with the recipe.

2. Line a 25cmx 10cm loaf pan with baking paper.  Add the cashews, almond meal, salt, cinnamon and vanilla to a food processor and mix until crumb like.

3. Add the peanut butter and rice malt syrup and blend until it forms a ball. Add more peanut butter if needed, until it reaches a consistency that can be pressed into a pan.

4. Press half the peanut butter base mixture into the loaf pan and smooth with your fingers.

5. Spread chilled chia jam over the base. Crumble remaining peanut butter base on top and gently press down.

6. Return slice to the fridge for 2 hours to set and cool.

Cut into 8 servings and enjoy with a cup of tea or glass of milk!

My best friend growing up was originally from the US, so I was introduced to American candy early! When we moved cities away from each other, I missed my supply of Reeces Pieces Peanut Butter Cups and Peanut Butter M&M's. 

Nowadays, these chocolate candies are way too sweet for my taste buds, however, this version you CAN enjoy in moderation, without the trans fats and refined sugar.

I'm all about eating in season. There's nothing better than a juicy ripe tomato in summer or a new season apple right from the tree. And as I'm sure you're aware it's the height of blueberry season, so while they're fresh and cheap I thought I'd create a blueberry lunch box loaf everyone will love.

I've seen many remakes of the American classic Oreo cookie, many of them raw, most of them containing dates or coconut sugar, so I set out to make a version with even less sugar!

These deliciously chocolatey (is that even proper English?) biscuits can be made and eaten as is, or you can fill them with whatever filling you choose! I used mascarpone here, which complemented the biscuit really well, but if you're dairy free you could try some whipped coconut cream or even coconut butter for a slightly sweeter filling.
