Recipe: No Bake Cookies with Peanut Butter and Jelly

Please share if you love it!

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.

No Bake Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

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.

No Bake Peanut Butter and Jelly CookiesThis 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.

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.

Have a terrific week everyone!

    I love that these are no bake. And, yes, I remember the squishy white bread. I cannot even imagine buying that white fluff today. I like my bread with substance.

    My husband loves oatmeal cookies and I think these are going to be a hit with him. I imagine they will freeze well because if I don’t freeze at least half, he’ll probably eat them all in a few days. Ha!

      They do make a lot if there is just the two of you. We’ve been eating them for a week solid! I’m with you – I can’t imagine eating Wonder Bread these days. I love the chewy texture of whole grain breads with nuts and seeds.

    Well, it just so happens I made some strawberry jam this week with some frozen strawberries I found lurking in the bottom of the freezer. I am looking for new ways to eat it so these cookies are perfect! (Jelly here is Jell-O, so I always thought Peanut Butter and Jell-O was a peculiar combination – I´m glad I´ve learnt the difference :) )
