vegan peanut butter and jelly cookies.

I don't usually make cookies because I feel like I need to eat them all. I usually make cookies because I crave the process. It's comforting and familiar and I'd choose my house to smell like cookies rather than moth balls any day.

Something I do crave...constantly....is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (see what I'm getting at here?
Did you read the title of this post?). I'm a firm believer in the healing power of a really good PB&J, especially if someone else makes it for you.

We've got the best of both worlds here: a crazy easy cookie recipe and the comfort that ever popular
peanut butter and jelly combination.

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies:


1 cup crunchy or creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

1/4 cup jam (any flavor)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all cookie ingredients together (minus the jam). Place one inch balls of dough on a prepared cookie sheet. Using your index finger, make a well in the middle of the ball, making sure to repair any major crackage that may result.

Fill wells with jam.

Bake for 12 minutes and let cool on pan.

  1. These look great. There's no flour in the ingredients list, which makes them gluten free too. Excellent.
