  • First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except jam. Stir to combine.
  • Once a dough forms, use hands to roll dough into 12 equal sized balls. Balls of dough will be about 1 inch in diameter.
  • Use your thumb or the back of a teaspoon to lightly press down in the middle of each ball of dough.
  • Next, scoop a small amount (about a teaspoon) of jam into the center of each cookie. Fill almost to the top.
  • Bake for 13 to 14 minutes or until cookies have turned slightly godlen.
  • Then, remove from oven and cool on baking sheet. After 3 minutes, remove cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  • Once cooled, feel free to add more jam into the center of each cookie as desired.


  • If dough is too sticky or runny, add more almond flour 1 tablespoon at a time until dough is workable.
  • For a non Vegan option, replace melted coconut oil with melted butter or ghee.
  • Fill jam almost to the tops of cookies before baking.  Overfilling them will lead to a delicious but messy explosion.
  • Honey can replace maple syrup for a non Vegan option.
  • if cookies "crack" along the edges (as seen above), just wet your finger and repair them before baking.
  • I recommend my raspberry jelly for these cookies!
