Almond Butter Thumbprint Cookies

Delicious Almond Butter Thumbprints by the talented Teri-Ann Carty


  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 5 Tbsp warm water
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Jam of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare cookie sheet with parchment or silicone liner.
  2. In a small bowl, mix flaxseed meal with water and allow to sit for 10 to 15 min until gloopy egg-like consistency achieved.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together almond flour, protein powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Add almond butter, almond extract, and flax eggs, and stir until well combined.
  5. Shape dough into balls and roll between your hands until really smooth (to prevent cracking). Place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  6. Use your thumb to put an indent into the middle of each cookie. Fill each indent with a small spoonful of jam.
  7. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling.
