Scrumptious PB & J Cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup infused coconut oil

After infusing your choice of coconut oil, set aside above amount to cool. When coconut oil is cooled but still in a liquid state (not solid), pour into a measuring cup with a spout, add in peanut butter powder 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well, until peanut butter is smooth and slightly runny (the consistency of pancake batter).

Grease a mini or regular sized muffin tin on the bottoms and sides. Gently pour a small amount into the bottoms of the tins about 1/4 of the way up. Carefully place the tray in the freezer for 10 minutes.

Remove from freezer and drop a teaspoon of jelly on top of the frozen PB bottoms. Gently pour remaining peanut butter over jelly covering entire peanut butter cup.

Place back in the freezer for 1/2 hour or until peanut butter and jelly cups are solid. Gently pry out of muffin tins with a toothpick and serve immediately or store in the refrigerator as they will melt at room temperature.

Strain grinds pouring the cold brewed coffee concentrate into another pitcher and discarding grinds and cinnamon stick.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of infused butter
  • 2 slices of your favorite bread (sprouted, whole grain, gluten-free, etc)

  • 2 pieces cooked bacon (optional)

Preparation

After infusing the butter, set aside above amount to cool. In a large pan, place 1 tablespoon butter and heat on low medium.

Move bread around the pan so the other side is coated in butter. Place cheese slices onto each slice of bread. Allow cheese to melt onto both slices of bread before placing bacon, avocado and tomato on top of 1 slice of cheese then cover the sandwich with the 2nd slice of cheesy bread.
