Grain-Free raspberry jam thumbprint cookies:

These grain-free raspberry jam thumbprint cookies taste like a raspberry pie, only in cookie form.

Ingredients needed for cookie base:

  1. Almond flour
  2. 1 egg (substitue flax egg)
  3. Maple syrup
  4. Coconut oil
  5. Salt
  6. Baking soda

Do you have any substitutes for almond flour?

I have not tried any alternative for flours for this recipe. But my second choice would be using tiger nut flour for this recipe. But if you try another flour please let me know over on Instagram.

I can’t have eggs, what’s an alternative?

And if you can’t have eggs, you can use a flax egg, or any other egg replacers you use. But your bake time may vary.

How to prepare the cookie:

To prepare the cookie, add all the ingredients to a bowl, and mix. Let the dough sit in the refrigerator for an hour. Then with a small ice cream scooper, scoop out dough, roll into balls, and with your thumb press down gently. Bake 350 F for 8-10 minutes and let cool completely before adding the filling.

Ingredients for raspberry jam filling:

  1. Raspberries
  2. Lemon
  3. Vanilla extract
  4. Maple syrup
  5. Chia seeds
  6. Water

Preparing the raspberry jam filling:

Add the raspberries, water, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract to a small pan on medium low heat. Cook down for 2-3 minutes, using a spoon to smash up the raspberries. And then add the chia seeds, reduce to a low simmer, and cook down for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let rest for 10-15 minutes. But you could also prep this jam ahead of time.

What if I don’t like raspberries?

If you aren’t a fan of raspberries feel free to use any other berries you enjoy!

Putting the cookies together:

Once the cookies are cooled, add about 1 Tbsp of the raspberry jam to each cookie. And drizzle with some melted raw coconut butter. And store in the refrigerator to allow the coconut butter to set.

How to store cookies:

I like to store my cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I prefer eating my cold but you can also reheat by adding to your convection oven, or oven and bake for another few minutes to warm up.
