These easy vegan thumbprint cookies made with just 5 healthy ingredients the perfect sweet chewy vessel for your favorite fruit jam or even a fudge filling!


  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter

  3. Roll into small balls, flatten slightly, then use your thumb or finger to create a small well in the center of each cookie. 
  4. Fill each cookie with a teaspoon of jam.
  5. Bake for approximately 12 minutes at 350F or until the edges are just starting to brown.
  6. Remove from the oven. Cool briefly. Enjoy!


I used my homemade strawberry rhubarb jam for this batch. You could also use store-bought jam, I look for ones that are sweetened with fruit only. Or try one of my other homemade jam recipes: blueberry fig or strawberry banana. Or see the post above for other non-jam filling ideas!
