Okay folks, it’s that time of day. This is the last installment in our ever-so-crazy Oreo madness. The third and final recipe, featuring that old standby of the American lunchbox—peanut butter and jelly.
I know. It’s insane.
Without further ado, here they are!

|I would eat these for breakfast. source|
|Calling my name. source|
|Ay ay ay! source|
|Stuff 'em, girl. Wait that sounded wrong. source|
|Because why not? source|
|Not from scratch, but still a good idea. source|
|Needs more sprinkles. source|
Please note—do not pin any of the photos here, since I didn’t take them. Be a kind interneter; go to the original source.
So as you can see, I could’ve spent much, much longer doing this whole “Oreo madness” thing. But this is it for now.
|Try not to cry too much.|
As a peanut butter ‘n’ jelly lover, I was a huge fan of this final variation. It almost hurt to hand them over to my brother. I wept on the inside. You don’t often see peanut butter and jelly desserts featuring chocolate—if anything, it’s usually white chocolate—but I found the shortbread went very well with the peanut butter buttercream and strawberry jam. Most things go well with chocolate shortbread.
Let me correct that. Sweet things. Don’t go dipping any shortbread in guacamole because of me.
Here’s the recipe.
Vegan peanut butter and jelly Oreos
113 grams • coconut oil, softened • ½ cup
96 grams • peanut butter • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons
240 grams • powdered sugar • 2 cups
30 grams • nondairy milk • 2 tablespoons
80 grams • strawberry jam • ¼ cup
Place coconut oil and peanut butter in the bowl of an electric stand mixer; beat until smooth. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix to combine. Add milk and salt; whip until light and fluffy.
Pipe a ring of peanut butter frosting around the edge of one cookie. Add a dab of jam in the center—about a ½ teaspoon to a teaspoon. Sandwich another cookie on top. Munch.

In the theme of peanut butter and jelly, here are some other desserts to check out (as if you don’t have enough recipes to look at already).

Vanilla overnight oats with strawberry rhubarb chia jam and peanut butter granola. A gloriously healthy breakfast.
Peanut butter and jelly birthday cake. Try not to be scared off by my awful photography. It’s gotten slightly better. I think.
