Peanut Butter and Jelly Shortbread [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



  • 8 tbsp. vegan butter
  • 8-12 tbsp. natural peanut butter or peanut butter powder
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. powdered stevia
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/4 cup dried tart cherries, chopped


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the stevia, salt, whole wheat pastry flour and quinoa flour.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, maple sugar and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides and with the mixer on low, carefully add the flour mixture until it comes together like pie dough.  Add the dried cherries and process a bit more. If it seems too crumbly, add a 1/4 cup or so of water.
  3. Pat the dough into a thick rectangle, cover in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator until firm.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out (I divided the dough in two to make it easier) to a little over 1/4″ thick. Cut or slice into desired shapes and place on cookie sheets. Bake for 20-25 minutes – rotating pans halfway through – or until crisp and browned lightly.  Let sit on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.





I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
