These cookies are super cute and full of fun.
Plus, they’re easy to whip up in your food processor and they’re completely raw, meaning there are no eggs and there is no baking involved. That’s right- no oven needed for these babies! Perfecto for summer.
And, as always this recipe is free of gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs and refined sugar. That means you can eat the raw dough and not feel guilty about it, hehe.
So, what are you waiting for?
Let me show you how to whip up a cookie recipe in less than 20 minutes.
I’ve been making these thumbprint cookies for years – when all-purpose flours started to hurt my belly and xanthan gum and those other awful binders bloated my stomach like crazy, I decided to explore the world of simple no-bake baking. And surprisingly, I discovered a million ways to match your sweet tooth without having to use any processed flours or binders.
These cookies are so cute and they’re perfect to serve anytime of the year but summertime is ideal when made with fresh jam.
The best part?
They take about 10 minutes to make. No joke. So when you have last minute company coming over unannounced or you are wracking your brain trying to think about what to make for the dinner party you’re attending this weekend, you can simply toss these babies together- add a spoonful of jam and you’re all set.
Simple as that.
Pretty good, right?
I made these cookies a few months ago for my family and they forgot to serve them because they were in the fridge (thanks Mom!)… I think it’s because they wanted to eat them all themselves. Haha. My Uncle Mike (aka my cookie monster) wasn’t able to try them since they weren’t served but I know he’s reading this right now and wishing he had. I guess I’ll just have to whip these up again soon so my entire family can enjoy them.

Combine all the ingredients except the jam in a food processor until very smooth and a dough consistency forms. Remove the dough from the food processor and roll into 8 small balls.

Hi! This recipe looks delicious! If you have a moment, would you please let me know if you used quick or old fashioned gf oats?
Thanks for all you do!
I used old fashioned oats. Enjoy! xxx
Can you supply the nutrition info on these?
We don’t count calories for our recipes Candace because that wasn’t a part of our healing process. I healed with whole foods with lots of healthy fats so the focus is not on calories. xox Have a beautiful day!

Thank you so much Marci! xo
Can they be adapted to be made with Almond flour? Or does the flour need a binder?
Hi Karla! I didn’t try almond flour so I don’t know but you can try. They might be mushy! xoxx
I used to make peanut butter and jelly thumbprints before I got tired of using refined sugar. These seem great. Thanks!
Thank you; enjoy Vanessa!
