Vegan and gluten-free, these simple cookies made with almond flour, flaxseed meal, and maple syrup, paired with strawberry jam and chocolate, make a delicious, healthy treat!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 3/4 cup fine almond flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed meal
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup strawberry or raspberry jam* (note 1)
  • 1 cup stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, ground flaxseed meal, melted vegan butter or coconut oil, and maple syrup until combined.
  3. Form the dough into balls and flatten and use your thumb to create an indentation in each cookie, and place on the baking tray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes. Allow to cool.
  5. Place 1 tablespoon of jam in the indentation of each cooled cookie. Place in the freezer and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
  6. In a medium bowl, melt your chocolate chips and coconut oil, either by using a double broiler or in the microwave.
  7. Using tongs, pick up each frozen cookie and dip it in the chocolate, then place it back on the tray. Drizzle the dipped cookies with a little more of the remaining melted chocolate.
  8. Place the tray back in the freezer until firm. Keep these stored in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
