[2nd contest] Nuts About You! [Lv.intemediate]

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Peanut butter and jelly is a kid-friendly classic, but it was time to remix it and give it a new twist! I looked over and saw an innocent package of LIVING JIN Agar Agar and decided to do a little experimenting. This quick and easy recipe is friendly on the budget and the tastebuds.

I'm a plant-based foodie based out of Charleston South Carolina. I love experimenting with new ingredients and techniques to bring familiar flavors and textures to my clients. I transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle after dealing with significant health issues, and life has never been better. I truly believe the direction of your energy towards what you want to manifest in life makes a huge difference.

Step 2. Peanut Butter Layer

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter

2/3 cup Almond Milk

1 Tbsp Agar Agar Powder


In a small saucepan, bring 2/3 cup almond milk to a simmer, add 1 Tbsp Agar Agar, and dissolve well.


When Agar Agar is fully incorporated, add 1/3 Tbsp cacao, and 2 Tbsp peanut butter. Mix until well combined.


Pour cacao and peanut butter mixture on top of cereal-walnut crust and spread evenly.

4) Cool in the fridge for about 15minutes.

Step 3. Jelly Layer

1/3 cup Jelly

2/3 Tbsp Agar Agar Powder

2/3 cup Water


In a saucepan, heat 2/3 cup water on medium-high heat and dissolve 2/3 Tbsp Agar Agar into water.


When Agar Agar is fully incorporated, add 1/3 cup grape jelly until melted down.


Pour grape jelly mixture over cooled cacao and peanut butter layer.


Refrigerate for about 15 minutes or until the top layer is solid.


Remove from mold, serve immediately, and enjoy within 3 days.


ENJOY! Your "Nuts About You!"
