Salted Chocolate + Almond Butter Coconut Flour Thumbprint Cookies (Gluten-Free)
Perfectly soft, chewy and pillowy Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies made with coconut flour, cacao powder, chocolate chunks, almond butter and a dusting of sea salt. These delicious cookies are easy to make, free of refined sugar and make a great healthy treat any time of the day!
These delicious cookies are genuinely my new favorite thing since I first created them. Firstly, their texture is quite addictive - you just want to keep eating them. Secondly, they are not super sweet - they have just the right amount of sweetness. Thirdly, they are quite fun to make and are a great make-with-your-kids kind of cookie.
You get to choose what kind of chocolate you place within your thumbprint - milk, dark, dairy-free, sugar-free, you name it - it works! But, the dusting of sea salt truly ties together all of the flavors. So, please don’t skimp on that!
These Salted Chocolate Coconut Flour Thumbprint Cookies are:
fun and easy to make
high in fiber and protein
free from refined sugar (so long as you use refined sugar-free chocolate chunks!)
just the right amount of sweet
filled with pleasing textures
great as leftovers and store well in the fridge for a quick healthy treat
gluten-free and dairy-free (so long as you use dairy-free chocolate!)
I hope you love these little healthy and tasty cookies as much as we do. Since first creating this recipe I’ve now made them several times and I can say that they are now a staple recipe in our household! I hope the same becomes of you. Enjoy! xo.
