Healthy Jello Muffin Top Cookies

Jello Cookies

This was a recipe that I baked on the fly.  Totally not like me, because I am incredibly orderly and try to schedule everything in my life.  But I am really glad that I made these Jello (Muffin Top) Cookies because they were kind of fun to make and everybody adored them.  Personally, I didn’t really see what everyone’s hype was all about, I thought the cookies were good, not great…  I guess I was in a chocolate mood that day?  But, everyone found these cookies super addicting and the entire batch was finished that day.

Chewy like a cookie, soft like a muffin top.  Incredibly fruity like the fruit itself and bursting with natural color, no artificial flavorings and artificial food colorings here  :)

Jello Muffin Top Cookies

Yield: ~18 cookies



    For the Cookie Base:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg replacer, almond milk, applesauce and extracts.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the oat flour, brown rice flour, baking powder and salt. Dump over the wet ingredients and fold together.
  4. For the Raspberry and Blue-Raspberry Flavor:
  5. Divide the entire dough into half and add the rasperry jel desert powder, red food coloring and raspberry extract. Stir together until soft and pink.
  6. Divide the halved dough into another half. Use a cookie scoop to portion the double-halved dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for ~11 minutes or until the surface springs back when tapped. Slide the cookies off the pan and onto a wire cooling rack.
  7. Add the blue food coloring and blueberry extract to the other half of the dough. Use a cookie scoop to portion the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for ~11 minutes, cool on a wire cooling rack.
  8. For the Orange Flavor:
  9. Add the orange jel desert powder, orange food coloring and orange flavor to 1/4 of the dough. Stir together until thoroughly mixed, scoop the dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for ~11 minutes, cool on a cooling rack.
  10. For the Peach Flavor:
  11. Add the peach jel desert and orange food coloring to the last 1/4 of the dough. Stir together until thoroughly mixed, scoop the dough onto the cookie sheet and bake for ~11 minutes. Cool on a wire cooling rack.


Dough should be light and fluffy kind of like a muffin batter. It will probably be easier to scoop the dough using a cookie scoop rather than a spoon like what I did.

This recipe is: sugar free, low fat, gluten free, vegan!

  1. But, if there is any kind of gelatin in it, it’s not vegan. gelatin comes from cow cartilage. Unless you used some substance that works like gelatin that isn’t made from animals?

      Melissa, there is no gelatin used… the jel desert I used is vegan and made with pectin.

  2. What do you use for your jel dessert and natural colouring? are there specific brands you use?

  3. Do you have nutrition facts for these cookies? Also, where do I get things like oat flour, peanut flour, brown rice flour etc…. I notice these ingredients listed in your recipes. Thanks!
