It’s peanut butter jelly time! After finding this awesome bread-shaped cookie cutter, I knew I had to make Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Cookie Sandwiches! And I’ve used Quest protein powder here, since the whey/casein blend is great for protein cookies.
To keep the filling free of refined sugars, I used a delicious grape all-fruit spread. Of course, you can use whatever filling you like! I bet these cookies would be great with my Protein Marshmallow Fluff, too!
These cookies are big, almost the size of a real pb&j sandwich. If you’d like to make smaller servings, you can make half-sandwiches out of these, or just make the dough into small balls, and flatten them to make smaller circular cookies.
However you make them, these Peanut Butter & Jelly Protein Cookie Sandwiches will be delicious! Enjoy!

- 1 cup Quest protein powder (peanut butter flavor, or to keep it all-natural, use multi-purpose (unflavored) and replace 2 tablespoons with powdered peanut butter) (74g)
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour (14g)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder (5ml)
- ⅛ teaspoon sea salt (0.6ml)
- 1 tablespoon erythritol (12g)
- ¼ cup almond-coconut milk (60ml) (or any cartoned nut milk)
- 1 tablespoon almond oil (14g or 15ml) (or melted coconut oil)
- ¼ cup grape all-fruit spread (72g)
- Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
- Mix dry ingredients: protein powder, coconut flour, baking powder, sea salt, erythritol.
- Add almond-coconut milk and almond oil. Mix well, pressing down with the back of a spoon to combine, then using your hands to form the dough.
- Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper.
- Roll or press (with the heel of your hand) the dough to be flat, and to be just large enough to get 6 cookies with your bread-shaped cookie cutter.
- Cut out the cookies, and lay them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
- Bake for 4 minutes, and check every 1-2 minutes until firm. Don't overbake!
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Once cool, turn over 3 cookies, and top them with grape all-fruit spread. Top with remaining cookies.
- Enjoy! Store these in the refrigerator.
The peanut butter flavor Quest protein powder has a bit of sucralose in it, but the multi-purpose (unflavored) is all-natural.
Also, I don't typically count the carbs of calorie-free sweeteners. If you count them for the erythritol here, it adds 4 grams of carbs per serving, but does not change the calories.
