Healthy Cookies with Peanut Butter & Jelly

Ladies, this is an amazing recipe for healthy peanut butter and jelly cookies. 

It's so important to take a balanced approach to health and nutrition, and to make sure it is sustainable in the long term. I usually eat Mediterranean-style food, which includes a wide variety of healthy foods I love — lots of vegetables, meat, seafood, rice and pasta. For snacks, I often eat fruit or dips with vegetable sticks, with the occasional sweet treat.

This recipe is perfect for those days when you want to satisfy a sweet tooth but stick to your health goals. These cookies are high in protein, gluten-free, have no added sugar and are suitable for vegetarian diets too!

Healthy Peanut Butter Cookies

Raspberry Chia Jam For Peanut Butter Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/360F.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and set aside.
  3. Add all the ingredients except the raspberry chia jam to a food processor and mix until it forms a dough. The dough should be easy to form into balls.
  4. If the dough is too crumbly, add a touch more peanut butter or water to your mix the until desired consistency is achieved. Alternatively, if dough is too wet or sticky, add slightly more peanut flour.
  5. Once the dough is easy to handle, roll it into golf-ball sized shapes. Next, indent the tops with a spoon to make a cute well for the raspberry chia jam.
  6. Fill each well with approximately 1 to 1 1⁄2 teaspoons of chia jam.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden.
  8. Remove from oven and leave to cool.
