Healthy Thumbprint Cookies
These 8-ingredient Healthy Thumbprint Cookies are so simple and delicious, you’d never know they’re refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan!
Thumbprint Cookies are just like regular cookies but with a teaspoon or so of fruit jam in the center, which adds a mouthwatering contrast in both texture and flavor.
They. Are. So. Good!
These Healthy Thumbprint Cookies are seriously delicious. They’re basically soft and chewy almond butter cookies with raspberry fruit spread in the center. Like a PB&J made into an AB&J, and then turned into a cookie.
Can these get any better?? No, they can’t.
And guess what? These are so incredibly easy to make, too. They require only eight simple ingredients and take just a few minutes to whip together.
The almond butter makes these cookies rich and buttery, the jam makes them sweet, and their beautiful appearance makes them oh so tempting. No worries, though. These Thumbprint Cookies are good for you!
These 8-ingredient Healthy Thumbprint Cookies are so simple and delicious, you'd never know they're refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan!
- 128g (½ cup) Roasted Almond Butter
- 40g (¼ cup) Coconut Sugar
- 3 tbs Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ¼ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract (optional, if you want sweeter cookies!)
- 120g (1 cup) Oat Flour
- ¾ tsp Baking Soda
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 3 tbs 100% Fruit Raspberry Spread (or whatever flavor you like)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together the almond butter, coconut sugar, almond milk, vanilla extract, and optional stevia extract.
In a small bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking soda, and salt. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and fold together. Form the dough into a ball. Break off chunks of the dough and roll into balls. Shape the balls into patties and place them on a baking sheet.
Use a teaspoon measure to indent "thumbprints" into the cookies. Reshape any large cracks that form on the edges of the cookie dough. Fill each "well" with some fruit spread.
Bake for ~10-11 minutes (do not overbake!). Slide the parchment paper off the pan and onto the counter and let cool completely. Serve and enjoy!
130-calorie cookies?? Not bad. Not bad at all! I’ll take three, please. 😉
These Thumbprint Cookies are soft, chewy, and perfectly sweet!
Is it just me or are these cookies just the CUTEST little thangs??
