PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY COOKIES

Who doesn’t LOVE Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies?  Give me any nut butter and some jelly and I am a happy woman.  In this episode of #SaturdaySnackDown, Erin Riley-Carrasco shares one of her favorite “vegan by default” indulgences…a delicious combo of organic peanut butter, raspberry jelly, and bananas.  These no oil, protein-packed, super tasty treats are fun to make with the kids or fun to make if you’re just a big kid at heart.

 

 

NATURALLY VEGAN, PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY COOKIES

There are only 6 ingredients in these delicious plant-based cookies and you can get creative and add sprinkles of your choice or vegan mini chocolate chips at the end to top the cookies off, as Erin did.  The possibilities truly are endless, so get creative and put on your baking gloves!  This is a vegan recipe you don’t want to pass up.

Sweets have always been troublesome for me, so I generally don’t eat them (because I don’t know when to stop ha ha).  However, with a recipe like this, so healthy AND tasty, I think I might just have to make these.  They are a guilt-free dessert.

Peanut butter gets a bad name by some because it is considered a high-fat food.  But the fat in peanut butter is heart-healthy monosaturated fat.  This is the good fat your body needs and craves.  It is also a great source of potassium, magnesium, iron, and protein.  So don’t be so hard on peanut butter.  It’s a healthy food choice.
