Vegan Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies

Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies

Hi friends! I’m so excited to share this delicious gluten-free vegan thumbprint cookie recipe with you today. Due to popular demand, I’m starting to include more and more gluten-free recipes on Veganbell and I hope you’ll enjoy all the diverse dishes I’ll be posting here.

These cookies are primarily made using a combination of oat flour and almond flour, which gives them a deliciously nutty and slightly chewy texture. As a sweetener, I used coconut nectar, but you can use any other liquid sweetener like maple syrup or agave nectar if you prefer.

For the filling, I used a variety of fruit jams like orange, black grape, and this homemade strawberry-chia jam. You can also use chocolate-hazelnut spread if you’re in the mood for something a little more indulgent.

Let’s go!

  • To a mixing bowl, add coconut syrup (or maple syrup) + peanut butter + soy milk + vanilla extract + salt. Mix well.
  • Once everything is well-combined, add oat flour + almond flour + baking powder + baking soda. Stir and mix using a spatula until a dough is formed.
  • Let it chill for 25-30 minutes.
  • Once chilled, scoop around 1 tablespoon of the dough and roll it into a flattened, spherical disc (see video for reference). Make sure there isn't any crack while doing this. Transfer it to a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat the same for the rest of the dough.
  • Using your thumb, gently press down to make a small 'well' in the center. Repeat the same for the rest. Then fill up these well with jam.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C / 355 F for 14 minutes.
  • Allow them to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet to firm up. Then transfer to cooling rack. Gluten-free thumbprint cookies are now ready. Enjoy!
