vegan thumbprint cookies

27 Apr

these are a favourite of mine.  so simple, so easy to make – even for someone who does NOT bake well {that would be me}…

easy ingredients and usually found around the pantry.

– 1 cup almonds

– 1 cup rolled oats

– 1 cup pastry flour

– 1/2 cup canola oil {i usually cut back on this if i can and add a little more syrup instead or even applesauce}

– 1/2 cup maple syrup or brown rice syrup

– pinch of salt

– jam or conserve of your choice

using a food processor {or nice blender if you have one}, grind up your almonds and oats until almost like a flour consistency. i left mine with some almond chunks in because i like that 🙂

add in the remaining ingredients (hold the jam for the last step) and blend together until the mixture easily glides around the bowl :

then gather into ping-pong sized balls and lay on a baking sheet lined with foil for easy clean up.

press your thumb into each ball to create a space to dollop your jam into… {haha, that sounds like song lyrics}

i used strawberry conserve, but i have been thinking that something savory would work really well with this – a jalapeno jam or something…

bake until they begin to brown on the sides, then remove from oven just before done – they will continue to cook a bit – i’d say about 10 minutes at around 400 degrees.  {sorry – i don’t measure or time much – i just usually roll with it}  also, these are fairly healthy cookies… which rocks.

they look something like this :

and then, they’re gone…
