These Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies are Grain-Free, Vegan, Naturally Sweetened, and made with only 6 healthy ingredients!
You know those moments when you eat food that’s so good, you can’t help but do a little happy dance and close your eyes? Recipe testing these Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies was one of those times for me.
Not only are they dance-party delicious, but they’re also Grain-Free, Naturally Sweetened, and made with only 6 healthy ingredients!
So, what’s the secret to soft, pillowy cookies with crispy edges? In this case, it’s a combination of Almond Flour, Tapioca Flour, Almond Butter, and Maple Syrup…that’s pretty much it! The Almond Flour and Almond Butter give these cookies a great Almond flavor, but you can also add in a touch of Almond Extract if you’d really like to take things up a notch.
I wanted to keep these cookies on the healthier side, so I decided to fill them with some homemade Chia Seed Jam, which is also naturally sweetened! I made a Raspberry and Blueberry Jam for these cookies, but you can use any berry you’d like.
These cookies are abso-freakin-lutely delicious, and are perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up, lighter dessert, or treat to share with friends and family! I love to warm mine up in the toaster oven and serve them with a tall glass of non-dairy milk. But now that I think of it, they’d also be great with some Tea or Hot Chocolate…
A Few Final Thoughts:
- If you don’t want to make your own Chia Seed Jam, you can always use store-bought!
- This Cookie dough is a little trickier to work with than a “standard” cookie recipe, due to the use of different ingredients. Please read the instructions carefully – I’ve included lots of helpful tips too!
- Also, it’s worth to note that the cookies change texture over time – if you eat them the day of baking, they will be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. After around 8 hours, they get more soft and doughy. They are delicious either way, but just keep that in mind if you are planning on serving them a certain way!
