1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
2 tbsp. Chia Seed

20 tsp. jam

Recipe Directions for almond butter and jam cookies

  1. Almond Butter & Jam Sandwich Cookies

  2. Makes 20 cookies

  3. Ingredients:

  4. 4 Tbsp. coconut oil, softened (you could also use butter)

  5. 4 Tbsp. almond butter

  6. cup / 75 grams coconut sugar

  7. 2 Tbsp. chia seeds

  8. 4 Tbsp. water + 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup

  9. 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  10. 1 cups / 200 grams oat flour (grind gluten-free rolled oats in food processor)

  11. 1 tsp. baking soda

  12. tsp. sea salt

  13. Jam or jelly of your choice

  14. Directions:

  15. 1. Combine water and maple syrup in a small bowl, add chia and stir well. Set aside for at least 15 minutes to form a gel. Preheat oven to 350F/ 175 C.

  16. 2. Blend rolled oats in a food processor to make flour (a heaping 2 cups of oats should make the 1 cups required for the recipe). Add baking soda and salt, pulse to mix.

  17. 3. In a large bowl whisk coconut oil and almond butter together until creamy. Add coconut sugar, vanilla, and chia gel, whisk to combine. Add the dry flour mixture in thirds, folding to incorporate. By the end you will have a rather stiff dough that you may need to mix with your hands.

  18. 4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form the dough into 40 balls, roughly a level tablespoon?s worth. When all the balls have been made, take a flat-bottomed drinking glass and press the dough into rounds about 2?/ 5cm across. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just starting to brown on the bottom.

  19. 5. Let cool for a couple minutes, then place cookies on a cooling rack. When they have cooled completely, place a teaspoon or so of jam in the middle of 20 cookies, and place remaining cookies on top, pressing slightly to spread the jam (to keep the cookies crisp, only fill those that you will be eating that day). Serve.
