NOTE: You can use any no sugar added peanut butter such as; Jif or Skippy- just keep in mind the point values may vary depending on the brand you use. 

What sugar sweetener do you recommend fo these cookies?

The sugar substitute that I love and use is Lakanto Monkfuit Sweetener. It’s zero calories and zero PersonalPoints. 

 I use the Classic for the white granulated and Golden for the brown sugar substitute. Lakanto MonkFruit Sweetener is a zero glycemic, zero calorie and all natural sugar substitute. It is by far the best tasting sugar alternative and has zero aftertaste or gritty texture like some of the sugar alternatives have. It has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar-so if you were to use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the measurement that would be equal to real sugar.

NOTE: If you use a different sugar alternative you’ll want to check the point value on the brand you use. They can vary in points.

In addition to the reduced fat peanut butter and peanut butter powder, I also use peanut butter extract to enhance the peanut butter flavor in these cookies without adding more points. You may use vanilla extract-keep in mind the cookies won’t have as much peanut butter flavor as they would be if you use the peanut butter extract.

You can find peanut butter extract online on Amazon HERE.

How do I make these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies?

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

Line a cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the two sugar substitutes and peanut butter.

Mix until thoroughly combined.

Whisk in the egg or egg whites, water and peanut butter extract until smooth.

Add Kodiak Cakes along with the peanut butter powder and stir until fully combined and a smooth dough is formed.  

Drop the dough by 1 rounded tablespoon onto cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.

Making 16 single cookies

Flatten each ball with a fork, making a crisscross pattern.

Cook for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly golden.

Let the cookies cool for at least 10 minutes before assembling the cookies. I recommend assembling only the cookies that you’re planning on enjoying right away.

Store leftover peanut butter cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Assemble the cookies by adding a teaspoon of peanut butter on one cookie, and adding a teaspoon of sugar free jam or jelly on the second cookie.

Place the two cookies together.

Repeat with remaining cookies.

Once the cookies have cooled, store leftover cookies in an air tight container on the counter for 2 days or in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 6 months.
