Healthy & chewy Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprint Cookies with a jam filled center to give you that perfect sweet and salty combo for the holidays.
Peanut butter and jelly has definitely got to be one of the ultimate flavour combinations. There’s just something nostalgic about it that takes me right back to when I was little and to be honest I still enjoy a good PB & J sandwich to this day. I thought I would make a traditional cookie with a traditional flavour combination and create these Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprint cookies. These healthy cookies are perfect for a holiday cookie exchange or just to fill your cookie jar with over the holidays to grab and snack on 1 or 2 as you’re passing by.
Best part about these thumbprint cookies is that they are loaded with plant based protein from the peanut butter and Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts which I have yet to find a recipe that you cant throw these into some how. Hemp Hearts are definitely a kitchen staple in my house.
These cookies take no time to mix up, 10 min to bake and 2 min to eat… just kidding they will hopefully last at least an hour 😛
If you follow me on Snapchat (urhealthnut) then you know I tested these cookies out about 6 times in the HealthNut Test Kitchen until I came up with the perfect recipe to share with all of you. You guys always ask me how I come up with my recipes and it’s really just a lot of trial and error especially when it comes to baking. So just let me do the testing and all you have to do is the baking and eating… I think that’s a pretty good relationship if you ask me 😉
If you recreate this recipe make sure to TAG me on social media @urhealthnut so I can find, like and share all of your beautiful food pics.
Thank you to Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods for sponsoring this post and allowing me to live out my dream job of inspiring and encouraging you to eat and live a healthier and balanced lifestyle, one cookie at a time!
