Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies

Yesterday I made some homemade healthy cranberry sauce.

Since it is not quite Thanksgiving, I had to find a way to use up the sauce I made.  So a cookie came to mind and Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies were born!

These are yummy and they are also a fun cookie to make with your kids.  I have made another version of these in the past and my daughter Meadow loved making the thumbprint in each cookie.  She loves eating them too as you can see in this next picture.

My other daughter Olive is to young for nuts, so she had applesauce.

Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup almonds
1 cup spelt flour
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil (measure after melting)
1/4 cup applesauce
2 T milk (I used almond milk)
Any fruit jam you like (I used homemade cranberry sauce)

Preheat oven to 350.  In a food processor, combine the oats and almonds and pulse into a powder. In a large bowl, combine the almond/oat mixture and flour.  In a small bowl combine the applesauce, maple syrup, oil and milk.  Mix wet into dry.  Roll dough into small balls and then flatten the balls with your hand.  Using your thumb, make a thumbprint into each cookie.  Spoon jam into each print.  Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

  1. Hi. I love and have made several of your recipes but for Christmas me and my daughter are planning to make cookies or biscuits for the family. Which of your recipes are longer lasting - as I need them to keep for longer and if possible not in the fridge. Thank you for any help!
  2. These are delicious! I made these and the gingerbread cookies. I would make these ones again because they were that good. Wasn't a fan of the gingerbread ones...
    1. Glad you liked them! Sorry you were not a fan of the gingerbread cookies. I understand not every recipe will always be a winner with everyone.
