"Peanut Butter" and Jelly Cookies

I got a couple really cool cooking things for Christmas this year. To top my list I got a brand new food processor from my parents... it is awesome! No longer will I battle and dread using my crappy one that got me through college until now- it is being donated to hopefully be "loved" by someone else. I have used it to make "Peanut Butter" Protein Bites for a friend and the cranberry dip for new years... I cannot wait to use all the attachments it came with!!!! The other cooking appliance I got was a dehydrator from Rudy- I started with pears and Charlie ate all of them (two whole pears) in one sitting. I want to make jerky next but my store didn't have flank steak that looked ok so I am going to wait a week. In the mean time I am dehydrating everything else... so much fun.  

Next up! Raisins!! 

These little gems got some rave reviews from the testers at the box. I think the jelly really helps give them a different texture/flavor and the normally drier paleo cookie could use some moisture. I think I am getting pretty good at baking with protein powder :) The pumpkin in this is purely for moisture- you won't taste pumpkin at all. 

"Peanut Butter" and Jelly Cookies

(Printable Version)

makes ~35 cookies

- 1/2+ Cup Chocolate Protein Powder (heaping)
- 1 Cup Sunbutter (or any nut butter)
- 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 2 Tbsp Instant Coffee Granules
- Jelly of your choosing-- I just used frozen raspberries heated and mashed with a little honey.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

1. Whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth. 

2. On a parchment lined, or greased, cookie sheet make tablespoon-sized mounds of batter. Using the back of a spoon, and a "swirl" movement, flatten slightly and create small holes in the middle of each mound.

 Fill each hole with about 1 tsp of jelly. 

3. Bake 12-15 minutes, let them cool before enjoying!
