Thumbprint Cookies

These are cookies would be a nice afternoon snack.

They aren't too sweet but seem hardy, like something you'd eat to get you through that two o'clock sleepy time. Not that I know anything about that... ;)

Have some jam on hand so you can always add a little extra.

Peanut Butter Thumbprint Cookies

1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp Maple Syrup
½ cup non dairy milk (I used almond milk)
2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut (I omitted this)
1.5 tbsp of your favourite vegan Jam (I used raspberry)

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius/ 392 degrees fahrenheit
2. Mix the peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla together to form a smooth paste
3. Add the flour, baking soda, sesame seeds and stir together
4. The dough will be really stiff, so add a little of the milk until it comes together into a pliable dough
5. In a baking tray lines with baking parchment, form the dough into 8 balls and press down in the centre with your thumb to make an indentation
6. Bake in the oven for between 7 and 12 minutes (keep checking, the cookies should be lovely and golden
7. Remove from the oven and let cool
8. Using a teaspoon pop a little blob of jam in the indentations to fill them


  1. Cookies with peanut butter and maple syrup sound really yummy!

  2. Peanut butter is nice with many things isn't it? :)

    These cookies aren't too sweet though. You could always add some more maple syrup if you wanted.
