Peanut Butter Raspberry Jam Filling Cookies

The iconic sandwich turned into a dessert! If you’re wondering if these cookies are just as easy to make as the sandwich, well then, yes you are right. You start with a soft, gooey peanut butter cookie and then amplify the taste by filling them with some raspberry jam. Not only are they sweet and irresistible, they are sugar free, all thanks to the use of xylitol and erythritol! So now when you’re looking for a small sweet peanut butter and jelly treat you can enjoy this delicious cookie, it is the perfect treat! For me, finding the perfect balance in a snack or treat is hard, but with this recipe you will know you’ve found exactly what you were looking for.

After school snacks for our kids… I think we all dread that time of day. How do you make one thing that will please all of your kids and their friends, while keeping it something healthy, but also something that they will eat? The first thing that comes to my mind is a PB&J, however, we all know when you’re the one on snack duty the day your kid brings home 6 friends putting together a bunch of sandwiches takes too much time in their minds. That is why these cookies have been perfect to make ahead and have it ready when the kids come home! My kids love them, their friends love them, and now all of their parents love them because it’s a healthy and easy option.

I have now become the ultimate snack maker, according to my kids. I love being able to make things that even my kids appreciate! Finding a healthy option for my little one’s can be hard, but with the right ingredients it makes that process so much easier. This has definitely become the perfect treat in my house!

Plus I am not worried they will be over consuming sugar because its made with natural xylitol and erythritol Lite&Sweet. A much better sugar option than regular refined white sugar that cause so many problems. It is my duty to search out and make good food for my family and when I am using this sweetener I can rest assure that I am making the right choice when it come to their health and well being.
