This Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies recipe was created for O’Bear. My picky nine year old who doesn’t love any cookie except peanut butter AND who will take pb&j sandwiches to school everyday. This is for you buddy!
Santa Cruz Organic sent me a variety of products to get my creative juices flowing. I thought of many recipes I could concoct with their organic products, but for some reason I couldn’t stop thinking about putting peanut butter and jelly together…in a cookie. This was a fun experiment!
Introducing my Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies!
Guess what? It is Gluten-Free. I wanted to make it as healthy as I could! It is also almost entirely Organic.
Besides the ingredients, which I will share in a minute, you just need tiny cookie cutters to make the center. If you don’t have any, I suppose using a knife to cut out the center will work just fine.
I ended up making sandwiches and single cookies – both peanut butter and jelly.
- 1c Almond Flour
- 1/2c Santa Cruz Organic Light Roasted Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1/4c Raw Honey
- 2T Coconut Oil
- 1t Pure Vanilla
- 1/2t Sea Salt
- 1/2t Cinnamon
- 1/4t Baking Soda
- Santa Cruz Organic Fruit Spread, as needed
- In bowl combine dry ingredients – almond flour, sea salt, cinnamon, baking soda.
- In another bowl combine wet ingredients – peanut butter, honey, coconut oil, vanilla.
- Fold together.
- Important! Form into balls and press down slightly to cookie shape. They will not get much bigger. If you forget to press they will stay in the ball shape.
- Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
- When cool, use mini cookie cutter to form a hole in the middle.
- For single cookies – do not have the cookie cutter punch through the other side or the jelly will fall out!
- For sandwiches – use cookie cutter on half the cookies and leave the other half whole. Take the whole cookie and put a small dab of fruit spread in the middle. Place a cookie with a hole on top and let the jelly come through.
This recipe doesn’t make a whole lot and they went FAST at my house! I’m going to make them again very soon because I couldn’t stay out of them. The peanut butter cookie is good by itself, but I’ll tell you that bite of jelly really adds a lot! Yum Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Cookies! You make me happy!
Make it fun with the cookie cutters and different designs – and change up the fruit spread flavor and colors! Different themes for different times of year 🙂
