Not enough time for an elaborate dessert? These Thumbprint Cookies can be on the table in less than 20 minutes!

Thumbprint Cookies


  • 2 cups oat flour

  • 2 tsps baking powder

  • 1/2 cup almond butter or other nut or seed butter

  • 1/3 cup dates, packed

  • 1/3 cup water, plus more to adjust consistency

  • pinch of salt (optional)

  • jam


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix the oat flour, baking powder and salt, if using. Set aside.

  3. In a small blender, process the dates and water until smooth.

  4. Add the date paste and almond butter to the dry ingredients and mix to form a ball of dough. Add more water, if needed, to adjust consistency.

  5. Use a 1-tablespoon retractable scoop to drop cookies onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  6. Press the center of each cookie with your thumb or finger to create a small well.

  7. Fill each cookie with about ½ teaspoon of jam.

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden brown. Do not overbake.

  9. Remove cookies from the oven, transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack for a few minutes to cool.

  10. Store in an airtight container for about a week, or in the freezer for up to three months.
