Get Sandwiching With These Peanut Butter and Flaxseed Jam Cookies

peanut butter flax jam cookies

Dessert is always a good excuse to remind yourself about the enjoyment of being a child. Peanut butter and jam the perfect childhood flavour combinations. I admit I don’t eat this exciting combo much anymore maybe sometimes on toast but rarely in a sandwich. In a cookie sandwich, definitely!

As we are always trying to find healthier ingredients to keep us fuelled, making your own jam with flaxseeds, linseeds, or chia seeds only takes a few minutes and is so much better for you than regular jam.
Not only because you can control the sugar but you’re getting the added boost of these power seeds.
High in Omega 3 fatty acids, heart-healthy, high in fibre, and helps fight cancer.

With the peanut butter, you can buy some great all natural brands with no sugar or added oil. Or roast and grind your own peanut butter. These are so easy to make and I would dare to say even fun! So get sandwiching!

Recipe Notes

If you would like to add these to a bowl of nice cream, just blend 2-3 frozen bananas with a spoon of lemon juice or water to make it come together. Then swirl peanut butter and the left over jam. Enjoy!
