Vegan Peanut Butter & Jelly Cookies {gf,v,rsf}

Updated: Apr 26, 2021

Yes, you read that right... peanut butter and jelly cookies, with homemade blueberry jam if I may add. Let me just start by saying, I am obsessed. Every bite out of these cookies instantly transports me back to my childhood. Don't hide it, I know you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, these cookies are seriously so simple and contain the best, more nutrient dense ingredients. This includes: all natural peanut butter, pure maple syrup. coconut sugar, pure vanilla, organic blueberries, unsweetened nut milk, and more. These cookies feature my classic blueberry chia jam, made with only 4 simple ingredients. With that said, these cookies are fully gluten free, vegan, dairy free, and refined sugar free. Let's get started!
