PB&J Cookies
2 cups crunchy natural peanut butter
1 1/2 cups natural honey
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces jelly, any flavor (i use smuckers simply fruit, it has no added sugars)

Mix together peanut butter, honey, oil, and vanilla until completely incorporated.
In a separate bowl combine flour, wheat germ and salt. Add to peanut butter mixture, stirring until it makes a stiff dough. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
When dough is chilled, preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a cookie sheet; set aside.
Form balls of about 2 tablespoons of dough and place them on cookie sheet. Flatten balls lightly with a fork. With your thumb, make a deep impression in the center of each cookie. Fill impressions with a dab of jelly.
Place cookie sheet on top rack of oven. Bake 8 to 12 minutes. Be careful not to over bake. Cool cookies before removing from cookie sheet.
Makes about 36 cookies

These... were so... absolutely... amazing!

I reccomend halving the recipe though because having 36 of these yummy things in the house is NOT a good idea :dizzy: I overbaked them a bit because when I checked after 10 min they were still really squishy.. but they harden when you cool them. Making another (not overbaked) batch soon! Thanks for this nummy recipe :)

That's what I was just thinking. Even if you sub agave in this really doesn't look like a beachy recipe. :shrug:
