America can bring a lot of iconic flavours to the table, but one of the most popular has to be their peanut butter. People literally go nuts for it.

We knew it was a no-brainer for a protein shake flavour, but then we thought we’d take things one step further on the scale of classic American treats with this incredible recipe. These high-protein peanut butter cookies can be made in under 15 minutes — and what better filling for them than some homemade “jelly”?

Using just a handful of ingredients that we’re sure you’ll have in your stock cupboard, you can enjoy these cookies whenever you fancy throughout the day. Not only are they a delicious snack, but they’re a great way to top up your daily protein intake and support those training goals.

For the cookies:For the jam filling:


  1. First, preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Add the peanut butter, eggs, and Sugar-Free Syrup to a large bowl and combine together with a spoon. Then add the protein powder and mix in well.
  3. With slightly damp hands, scoop out a small section of the cookie dough (aim for around a golf ball size) and roll between your palms to make a smooth ball. Place on a lined baking tray and flatten lightly with your fingers to make more of a cookie shape.
  4. Repeat for the remaining cookie dough and then bake for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, place the raspberries into a small pan along with the cornflour, Sugar-Free Syrup and water. Mash everything together over a low heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Turn off the heat once the jam has thickened and leave to cool completely.
  6. To serve, spoon a layer of jam onto a cookie and then sandwich together with a second cookie on top.
