Raspberry Chia Jam Cookies

With Christmas only 2 days away I thought this would be a fun little recipe to make to have over the festive season as a snack with my morning coffee! This recipe is dairy, gluten, wheat and egg free + it’s vegan! The main ingredient is almond meal and it’s sweetened only with maple syrup and vanilla! The homemade chia jam is also a yummy alternative to normal store bought jam. These cookies have a super soft texture and lots of flavour!

You will need
  • 1.5 cups almond meal
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • A few cracks of pink salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Homemade chia jam – recipe below
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
  2. Prepare homemade chia jam
  3. Combine dry ingredients: almond meal, coconut flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl
  4. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl: coconut oil, maple syrup & vanilla
  5. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine and form a dough – this dough might be crumbly but when you roll into balls it will stick together
  6. Roll into balls and flatten in a muffin tin (or on a lined tray) the muffin tin just make it easier so that the cookies stay together!
  7. Lightly press down on each cookie and scoop 1 tsp of chia jam into the centre
  8. Bake for 13-15 mins or until golden brown
