I can’t post this recipe today without giving you some low-key full disclosure. I’m not a real sweets kinda girl, but these cookies are straight-up like cookie crack. There, I said it. You have been warned.
I’ve made a few batches so far (“recipe testing” and just making extra certain they’re real, real good for you guys to try– spoiler, THEY ARE). And each batch lasts approximately 2 days. Maybe 3… if I have any kind of restraint. That’s 24 cookies… so you know. Warned. Mmm k?
They make me wanna do my happy little shoulder shake. Partly because I tell myself how many superfoods I’m “getting in”– which yes, is technically true. There are all kinds of good things in these guys. Which is what makes them all the more tempting (and incredible), to me.
And partly because they taste so indulgent, while being well, not indulgent ingredient wise. The best kind of combination, if you ask me.
Anyways, that’s all. Bake at your own risk.
Super Addicting GF Raspberry Jam Dots
Makes 12 cookies
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup gluten-free oats
1/4 cup coconut flour
6 tablespoons grass fed butter or ghee (melted)
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or my fav, this vanilla bean powder)
Juice-sweetened jam of your choice for the filling (I love the raspberry one from Trader Joe’s and the 365 Whole Foods brand)
Preheat oven to 350, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Form mixture into thick cookie patties, and gently push into the center to make thumbprints (see the video on instagram to watch it live).
Bake for 10-15 minutes, remove and add jam to the middle, and bake for another 3-4 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes (and if you can handle it, a few hours). I think these taste so much better the next day after sitting out and getting a little crispy.
Love this recipe? You’d love the cookbook then too. My second book, Simply Real Eating also just came out in November, so make sure you grab your copy here. And be sure to check out the seasonal meal plans (or the new Easiest DINNER ONLY Plan)! It’s what we literally eat for dinner every week.
