Flourless Peanut Butter and Jelly Thumbprints (gluten free)

  • Author: Katja Heino


The perfect marriage of peanut butter and jelly in one fabulous cookie. Crispy on the outside. Soft and chewy on the inside. And a nice balance of salty and sweet. 


  • 1 cup unsweetened peanut butter – creamy or crunchy (I used THIS brand)
  • 1 cup coconut sugar (I use THIS brand)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite jam


  1. Preheat oven to 350’F.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together peanut butter and coconut sugar.  Add in egg and baking soda and mix until fully incorporated and smooth.
  3. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and place onto prepared baking sheet.  Use your thumb to make an indentation in the center of each ball. Fill the center of each with a bit of jam (1/4 – 1/2 tsp).
  4. Bake for 12 minutes.  Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.  ENJOY!
