Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies (Phase 2)

Who would believe you can get such a delectable cookie out of such a simple recipe and with so few ingredients? (And that’s right, there’s no flour!) The not-too-sweet, deep nutty flavor — topped with a touch of fruit — is perfect for kids young and old. These cookies are so good that I need to remind you to limit yourself to one serving!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 14 minutes

Serves 12

3/4 cup granular sugar substitute
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup creamy trans-fat-free peanut butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar-free jam, any flavor

Heat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix sugar substitute, egg, and vanilla together with an electric mixer on low for 3 minutes. Add peanut butter and baking soda. Mix on medium until dough comes together, about 30 seconds.

Form dough into 24 (2-teaspoon) balls and place on baking sheet 1" apart. Gently press your thumb into the center of each to make an indentation. Fill each indentation with 1/2 teaspoon jam.

Bake until lightly browned on the bottom, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
