Ingredients

  • Parchment paper
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • Pinch of baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Chia Jam:

  • 1 (12-ounce) jar sour cherry jam
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat jam in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, until melted and hot. Add chia, and simmer 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • Cream almond butter, coconut oil and sugar in a bowl with a mixer, about 5 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, and mix well.
  • Add almond flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Stir well, until combined.
  • Bring dough together into a ball, put in a ziptop bag, and place in freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Pinch a bit of dough, and roll into a ball. Place your thumb in the center to form a shallow cup. Set on baking sheet. Repeat with all the dough. Fill each center with jam. Save any leftover jam for morning toast.
  • Bake 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. These cookies are best on the day they are made. They tend to soften as time goes on.
