My inspiration for choosing to make this recipe was some jam I got while I was in Bermuda. It’s a papaya sweet pepper jam, and has a tangy sweetness. I think it would be perfect for glazing some tempeh…

This jam is pretty cool because it’s sweetened with low-glycemic agave nectar, and it uses pectin (which is vegan) for gelling, rather than gelatin (which is made from animal bones).

It’s made by the Bermuda Jam Factory, and they’ve started distributing their jams into the US, so you might be able to pick some up for yourself!

They use pectin in all their jams and jellies (many of which are hot pepper), so they’re mostly vegan. There are just a few made with honey, and their caramel sauce uses dairy.

So from the inspiration of the jam, I wound up making these delicious little bites. I love the flavor of the jam with the peanut butter filling, and overall they’re a lovely treat and not overly sweet.

I changed the ingredients just slightly, using coconut sugar instead of sucanat and whole wheat flour instead of spelt – so wound up having to change the quantities just slightly. What’s posted here is exactly what I did, and you can click the link above for Angela’s original recipe.

My friend’s verdict was that she loved the different textures – the cookie-like base, super-creamy filling and the crunchy peanut butter was perfect.

I’ll definitely make these again – they are so easy! Since I’ve already finished my yummy jam, I’m going to try them with some vegan chocolate chips 🙂
