Grain-free, sugar-free, egg-free, gluten-free, oil-free but still packed with flavour, these peanut butter & jelly cookies are sure to be enjoyed!

Vegan pb and jelly cookies (800x600)

During my no-refined-sugar January, I came up with an adaptation of my flourless peanut butter cookie recipe (here).  I basically wanted to experiment with the recipe, making it oil-free, egg-free, sugar-free and, obviously gluten-free.  I decided to make these cookies for a Monday-night get-together on Sunday night and they were such a success, I got asked for the recipe by all in attendance!  So ladies in my Monday-night Bible-study (and anyone else who is interested), here you go!

These can be made to include chocolate (for chocolate peanut butter cookies) by including 30g cocoa and an additional tbs (30g maple syrup).  I used the chocolate variety as the base of a chocolate peanut butter slice and they worked really well!
