Sprouted Oat Thumbprint cookies

These festive delights have a soft center, crunchy toasted almond exterior and a burst of fruity jam!

An eye-catching and delicious thumbprint cookie is a staple on many holiday cookie plates, so we decided to give it our sprouted spin! Sprouted whole grain oat flour makes a wonderfully chewy, hearty, and naturally gluten-free cookie. Sprouting improves taste and texture, resulting in a sweet, mildly nutty flour. It also aids in digestibility and bioavailability. We paired it with almond butter and toasted almonds for a deliciously nutty treat!

ingredient tips & substitutions

  • Almond Butter – You can also use any natural (runny) nut butter. 
  • Almonds – You can swap for any other nut. The nuts toast a little as they bake, but feel free to lightly toast them beforehand too. 
  • Eggs –  We haven’t tried making these with egg replacements, but we don’t see why it wouldn’t work!
  • Jam –  We opted for raspberry, but any jam will work. If you’re not into jam, try filling the wells with chocolate spread, caramel, or more nut butter! If you don’t want to fill them, these cookies are also delicious without it. 

recipe notes

Allowing the dough to rest for 10 minutes allows the sprouted oat flour to absorb the moisture properly and makes it much easier (and less messy!) to roll into balls. Don’t skip this step!

The cookies will keep for several days in an airtight container at room temperature.

What You'll Need:

  • cups Second Spring Sprouted Oat Flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup finely chopped almonds (for rolling)
