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, refined sugar-free and, obviously gluten-free.  On a Sunday night, I decided to make these cookies for a Monday-night get-together 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 vegan peanut butter & jelly cookies 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!
