And on the eighth day of the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies, Thrive Market gave to me ... thumbprint cookies made raw and sugar-free! Here, we've reimagined the ubiquitous jam-filled treats by swapping out butter and flour for coconut oil and rolled oats, and mixing up a quick chia-berry jam for the center.
Raw Thumbprint Cookies
Yield: 12 cookies
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 15 minutes
For the jam 1 cup mixed blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries 2 to 3 tablespoons raw honey 4 tablespoons chia seeds
Make the cookies
Process all the ingredients but the oats together in a food processor until they form a thick, slightly chunky dough. Add the oats and pulse until the mixture comes together and the oats break up slightly. Form into 1-inch balls and make a thumbprint indentation in the center of each. Place in the fridge for an hour to set.
Make the jam
Place the berries and honey in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the chia seeds. Let stand 15 minutes to thicken, then fill each thumbprint with the jam. Store in fridge up to 3 days.
