You’d be hard put to find anyone who doesn’t love a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Something about the combination of creamy peanuts (with a little crunch in my house), and a fruity jam or jelly brings back memories of childhood days and school lunches packed with a PB & J sandwich and piece of fruit. At least that’s how it was growing up in my family.
Back in the day, we ate our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on soft, fluffy white bread. In fact, the bread was so soft that we could take a slice and squish it into a tiny ball. If you’re over 50, you might recall those Wonder Bread days.
Memories of those carefree childhood days were the inspiration for these no bake cookies with peanut butter, oats, and drops of strawberry jelly.
This is the easiest cookie recipe you’ll ever make – no baking, no complicated ingredients.
All you need are oats, peanut butter (100% peanuts I hope), honey, milk, a dash of vanilla and low sugar strawberry preserves.
Roll your concoction into little balls (sound familiar?), press a well into the middle, and top with a dollop of jelly.
Chill for a bit in the refrigerator and you have a healthy treat ready to go that tastes like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Don’t forget the glass of milk!
On another note, we’re celebrating our 5th blogiversary this week at Mother Rimmy’s. It’s been a ton of fun these past five years sharing recipes with you, and I’m looking forward to five more years.
