Jammin’ Almond Thumbprint Cookies

What You'll Need


1 cup oat flour

½ cup almond flour

6 Tbsp date sugar

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed

½ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp baking soda

½ tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of sea salt

½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk

¼ cup fruit-sweetened jam


How to Make It


1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oat flour, almond flour, date sugar, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

4 Add the non-dairy milk, and use a spoon or your hands to thoroughly mix the dough. It should be thick but not too sticky. If it is too wet, add a little more oat flour and mix well.

5 Scoop out about 1 Tbsp of dough and roll it into a ball.

6 Place on the baking sheet and continue with the remaining dough, positioning balls about 1-2 inches apart.

7 Press the center of each cookie with your thumb to create a well to accommodate ¼ tsp of jam.

8 Fill each thumbprint with ¼ tsp of jam.

9 Bake cookies until lightly golden brown, about 30 minutes.

10 Transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack for a few minutes to cool.

Cooking Tips

If you need to make sure these cookies are gluten-free you can buy oat flour that is labeled as gluten-free or make your own flour at home with gluten-free oats.

To prevent the dough from sticking, have a small bowl with water available to moisten your hands before rolling the dough into balls and pressing thumbprint.
