Almond Butter Blackberry Jam Thumbprint Cookies

By: chrislori
Makes: 1.5 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup of almond butter
  • ½ cup of pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, I used canola
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups of whole spelt flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the almond butter, maple syrup, oil and vanilla extract until well-mixed.
  • In another medium bowl, sift the spelt flour and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and mix until nicely combined.
  • Using a small ice cream scoop or your hands, dole out the batter into 1.5 inch balls on parchment-paper covered baking sheets.
  • Squash those balls right down with your clean, just-washed thumb! Make sure you’ve created a nice well that the jam can happily sit in.
  • Spoon your chosen jam into the thumbprint-created wells!
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, turning baking sheets halfway to ensure even baking.
