These Peanut Butter and Jam Bar Cookies are perfect for the holidays. They’re gluten-free and vegan too, so almost anyone can grab one from the cookie tray.
Everyone has their favorite holiday cookies, whether they’re chunky like my Cranberry Coconut Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, reminiscent of childhood favorites like these Peanut Butter Cookies with Dark Chocolate Drizzle, classic like Insanely Delicious Brownies, or old fashioned like today’s Peanut Butter Jam Bars. That’s why it’s nice to make an assortment – so everyone can find something they like.
These Peanut Butter and Jam Bar Cookies are decadently delicious, and the best part is that they’re jam packed with healthy whole ingredients ~ organic oat flour, organic rolled oats, organic peanut butter, organic strawberry jam, organic coconut palm sugar and organic virgin coconut oil. That’s why I bake – so I can control each and every ingredient that goes into my cookies (yup, I’m a bit of a control freak, just ask my husband).
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 8x8 inch baking pan.
- Mix together oat flour, oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a mixing bowl. Add peanut butter and coconut oil. Mix until blended. Press half of mixture firmly in prepared pan. Spread strawberry jam on top. Sprinkle remaining oat mixture on top and pat down firmly.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until top is golden brown.
- Cool and cut into squares.
