These gluten-free peanut butter and jam cookies combine a soft pb cookie, crushed peanuts and a sweet jam filling. A cookie that you can enjoy for breakfast with your morning coffee. They are a great afternoon treat, or grab-and-go snack too. The PB and Jam cookies are dairy-free because I used vegan butter and a bit of coconut milk.

  4. Add the gluten-free flour, baking soda and salt and mix on low speed.

  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
  9. Remove dough from fridge.
  10. Use an ice cream scoop to drop dough onto cookie sheet.
