Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookie Sandwiches (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

Oh, this recipe has a lot going on that will just make you taste buds go crazy! Inspired by the classic peanut butter cookie with a twist of the peanut butter and jam situation. Easy and fun to make, this recipe is a keeper guys!


From the simple ingredients to the combination of flavors, these cookies are just hit the spot on any nostalgic way! Since who didn't enjoyed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich right? I remember that they even sold the peanut butter jam with swirls of jam... epic!



About these Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookie Sandwiches:

For this recipe I used some peanut butter, of course, one egg and a combination of greek yogurt too! These are a great snack and very satisfying since I also used protein powder to add a bit of more density without using any flour. These are also low carb and gluten free!



The combination of healthy fats and protein here is just the perfect combination for steady glucose levels! From the fats from the peanut butter here along with the protein this is just a great snack, plus includes some antioxidants too.



These are really fun to make! I even made homemade jam, I simply mixed strawberries, hot water and a bit of a beef gelatin (you can use grenetine) to create that texture that resembled the jam. The sweetness is to taste, I added two tablespoons of granulated monk fruit.


Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Peanut Butter & Jelly Dipped Cookie Sandwiches:



The ingredients as you see they are super simple and basic. I find that using protein powder in cookies or any baked good is just a game changer! For this recipe I used an organic peanut butter protein powder, 22 Days. This one is also vegan!



The greek yogurt here adds a bit more of protein and makes that these cookies have a fluffier and softer texture! You are going to love this new hack! Epic combo with that strawberry and peanut butter. It's insane, in the good way.



The full instructions will be below along with the nutritional information per serving. A good gluten, dairy free and low carb epic cookie that will be even a good snack or treat for any time of the day! Each popsicle has 20.6g of protein! Plenty to keep you full for a while!



Overall this recipe is:

  • Low Carb

  • Dairy Free

  • Gluten Free

  • Meal Prep Friendly

  • Delicious!



The end result

These chewy and dreamy cookies are just another level, you are going to love them from start to end. The process of making these cookies is just so fun, simple and relaxing. Plus the taste exceeds the expectations from them.


The strawberry jam and the peanut butter filling is just the perfect soft filling that combines so well with the texture of the peanut butter cookies. The greek yogurt of the ingredients also makes the cookies super soft and chewy, and just with the right consistency to hold the filling.
