YIELD: 18 cookies

What's in it:

1½ cups almond meal
¼ cups flour (all purpose, OR gluten free (such as rice flour), or any comparable substitute)
2 TB ground flax seeds
¼ tsp + 1/8 tsp fine grain sea salt
1 tsp + 1/8 tsp baking powder
½ cup JOI almond nutbase
¼ cup + 3 TB maple syrup
½ tsp almond extract
1/3 cup shredded coconut, for rolling
5 - 6 TB raspberry, apricot or other jam of choice

How it's made:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare a large baking sheet with oil, a silpat mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (almond meal, flour, ground flax, salt, and baking powder), breaking up any clumps with your fingers.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix together the JOI, maple syrup, and almond extract until well combined. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until combined.
  4. Scoop approximately 1 1/2 TB of dough and roll into balls. If dough is too sticky, place in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to firm up.
  5. Roll balls in shredded coconut. Place balls of dough about 1.5-2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  6. With your thumb, press into the middle of the ball and shape a small well with your fingers.
  7. Add about 1 tsp of jam into each well.
  8. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes, watching closely after 9 minutes.
  9. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. enJOI!
