1 cup Tonomi cassava flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Your favorite fruit preserves for filling
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the cassava flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. If the dough feels too sticky, you can refrigerate it for about 10 minutes to make it easier to handle.
- Roll the dough into small balls and place them onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each cookie.
- Use your thumb or the back of a spoon to make an indentation in the center of each cookie.
- Fill each indentation with your favorite fruit preserves, creating a colorful and flavorful filling.
- Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown around the edges.
- Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, these irresistible paleo thumbprint cookies are ready to be enjoyed!
