PB&J Babka Buns

For many of us, the classic PB&J was a staple item in our lunches while growing up. I was and still am a huge fan, all thanks to my mom for making sure there was always a jar of both crunchy and creamy peanut butter in our kitchen. This vegan PB&J babka buns are like a sweet peanut butter and jelly sandwich that sends me straight back to my childhood lunches! I also think that it is totally justifiable to eat this babka for lunch because people eat PB&J sandwiches all the time! Right?



Usually, PB&J sandwiches use white sandwich bread, but I decided to take that concept and apply it to a sweet, Eastern European braided bread called a Babka. If you've ever had brioche or challah bread, the concept is pretty similar. Usually, babkas have a crispy crust and a flaky, soft dough with a cinnamon or chocolate filling, but this way we can skip the effort and time needed to make a PB&J sandwich and have it all together in one yummy slice!



Babka has been on my mind for a long time! There is so much about it to love. A tender fluffy crumb, the endless combinations of swirl and filling, a possible icing, knowing full well it pairs perfectly with any steaming holiday-themed beverage… This babka is super light and fluffily. The chia jam is very present and tart to balance the sweet an thick peanut butter. The babka making process is fairly therapeutic. The dough is easy to work, it’s easy to shape, it’s just a stress-free pleasure trip. This babka is the epitome of a comfort food. It has the PB&J flavour while not being overly sweet.
