Sarah Adler's Seasonal Jam Dots
- 1 cup almond meal
- ½ cup gluten-free oats
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- 6 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee (melted)
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- juice sweetened jam of your choice for the filling
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until combined.
Squeeze a small handful of the batter together so it becomes more moist.
Form mixture into thick ½ inch circular patties and gently push into the center to make slight thumbprints.
Bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and add jam to the middle. Bake for another 3-5 minutes, until slightly browned and done to your liking.
Let cool for a few minutes on a baking rack before enjoying.
