Peanut Butter Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

Who likes peanut butter and jellyyyyy? MEEEE

These are a delicious, vegan and low sugar alternative to regular thumbprint cookies. You can fill with whatever jam you want, or even peanut butter or chocolate spread! I have a few similar recipes coming your way so keep your eyes peeled!

Serves: Makes approx 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of oats, blended to a flour
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax, 3 tbsp water – set in fridge for 5 minutes minimum)
  • 5 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup jam of your choice (See my easy chia jam recipe)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180c and line a baking tray with parchment paper
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender and pulse until a ‘dough’ ball forms
  3. Roll out approx 12 balls (about 1 tbsp in size) and flatten on the baking tray
  4. Form a dent in each cookie with your thumb or the back of a scooped teaspoon
  5. Bake in oven for 15 minutes
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes then top with chia jam

Store in fridge in an air tight container for up to 1 week
