Make: 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

4/16/15 - By Anna Fader

If you like peanut butter and jelly, you'll love these super-easy-to-make, healthy, gluten-free and protein-packed cookies. All you need is three ingredients and about 20 minutes. I made this recipe up, and while these cookies aren't going to win anyone a place on Iron Chef, they make for a great after-school snack with a glass of milk. You could even eat them for breakfast. Why not?



1 cup of peanut butter (you can substitute another nut butter if you prefer)
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
Jam or jelly

1. Preheat oven to 350° and mix the maple syrup into the peanut butter.
2. Use a spoon to drop tablespoon-size dollops onto your baking sheet. Push your finger into the dough to make holes and fill with jam.
3. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Allow the cookies to cool completely before serving or they'll be too crumbly.
