Happy National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!

It is National PB -N- J Day!

This is a recipe post that is clean and organic, as well as GF. I have been diagnosed as being 'Gluten Intolerant'. Yay....

But please please give this recipe a shot. It is still AMAZING and delicious and you can feel just a little bit better about eating 12 one or two. ;)

Peanut Butter Cookies w/ Grape Jelly Glaze
{These are amazing whether they are organic or not; but Organic is best}


1 cup of organic peanut butter

1 cup of coconut sugar + 1 tablespoon of molasses {1 cup of brown sugar will work also}

1 organic egg

1 tsp. gf baking soda

1 tsp. organic vanilla extract

Preheat the over to 350 degrees.

Mix peanut butter with sugar and molasses until smooth. Add in the egg and beat until fluffy.
Mix in the vanilla and the baking soda.

Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake for 8 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE.

While the cookies are baking, lets get that frosting ready.

1 cup of powdered coconut sugar {or regular powdered sugar}

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup of organic grape jelly

Bring grape jelly to a simmer on the stove top, gradually stir in vanilla and powdered sugar.
Once well incorporated, let sit for 5 minutes to let it cool off and firm up.
Then drizzle over Peanut Butter cookies.

Once your beauties are ready.... don't share them!
Hide them as quick as you can!

OK, Fine. You can share. But I HIGHLY advise that you maybe kind of sort of hide a batch for yourself. Just sayin'.
