Oat Thumbprint Cookies with Raspberry Chia Jam

A healthy version of the classic jam thumbprint cookies. Made with oats, bananas & almond milk these cookies are gluten and dairy free with no refined sugar Remember that big batch of Raspberry & Vanilla Chia Seed Jam I made earlier this week? Well I enjoyed it so much I wanted to use it in a baking recipe. Since cutting down (and trying to completely cut out) gluten and refined sugar, I haven’t done a lot of baking. But I’ve been dying to create some clean eating baking recipes and these Oat Thumbnail Cookies are a brilliant start.

If like me you have a child at home all of next week for half term then these cookies will be a fantastic way to pass some time one rainy afternoon. They are super easy to make. All the ingredients can be mixed by hand and kids will love making the thumbprint imprints for the jam.

Made with oats, bananas & almond milk these cookies are gluten and dairy free with no refined sugar I’ve been swooning over jam filled thumbprint cookies on Pinterest for a while now but it wasn’t until I discovered the joys of chia jam that I realised that I could make them a little healthier. My version is gluten free, dairy free and contains no refined sugar. The cookies are naturally sweetened by the ripe bananas and you honestly will not miss the sugar.

Made with oats, bananas & almond milk these cookies are gluten and dairy free with no refined sugar I’ve kept the ingredients very simple in this recipe but you could jazz them up a bit with dark chocolate chips, raisins, chopped nuts, nut butter or desiccated coconut.

One thing worth mentioning is the consistency of these cookies. They are oat cookies, so are quite soft and  not the normal crumbly biscuits that you might be used to. They are however really really delicious. Just don’t tell the kids how healthy they are!

Recipe type: Snack
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 150g rolled oats (use certified gluten free if necessary)
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 50ml almond milk (cows milk would work too)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp raspberry chia seed jam
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 170c and line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Put the oats into a food processor and blitz until they are broken down into a finer consistency. Transfer the oats to a mixing bowl and add the mashed bananas, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until fully combined.
  3. With your hands roll the oats mixture into 12 equal size balls. Place them onto the baking tray and flatten with the back of a spoon to make a cookie shape. Using your thumb, make an imprint in the centre of each cookie and add ½ tsp of chia jam to each.
  4. Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes or until the edges start to crisp. Allow to cool on a rack.
  5. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
