Colorful Jello Muffin Top Cookies Recipe | sugar free, gluten free, vegan

Healthy Jello Muffin Top Cookies

What’s sweet and fruity, soft and chewy?  These Jello Muffin Top Cookies of course!  Each color has its own flavor — from orange to raspberry to peach to blue-raspberry.

These Healthy Jello Muffin Top Cookies are sweet, fun, colorful, and delicious, you'd never guess that they're sugar free, low fat, gluten free, and vegan!

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 Healthy Jello Muffin Top Cookies because they were super 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?

ANYWAYS.

Everyone said these Muffin Top Cookies were addicting and the entire batch was finished in a single day!

Before being split into separate bowls for the different jello mixes and flavor add-ins, the base cookie recipe starts off with main ingredients such as oat flour and applesauce.  The oat flour adds a chewy cookie feel along with a comforting, hearty flavor.  Oh, and some whole grains, fiber, and protein too!  The applesauce adds a lot of moisture to the cookies without the need for butter or oil.  I also used an egg replacer powder to make these vegan, but if you’d rather use eggs, you can probably substitute it with a whole egg and reduce the almond milk by ¼ cup!

  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?

  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!
