Who doesn't love a great cookie? You know what makes it better? When it's a sandwich filled with some tasty filling. This recipe calls for homemade concord grape chia jam, but since it's a little time intensive to make, you can substitute with any favorite ingredients like chocolate, berries or almond butter. And if you're looking for a plant-based sweet treat that's also gluten- and dairy-free, look no further because you're going to flip for these.

Almond Graham Sandwich Cookies With Concord Grape Jam


Almond Graham Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together flax meal and water. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes while you make the rest of your cookies.
  2. Mix together your brown rice flour, almond meal, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, mix together maple syrup, applesauce, vanilla, almond butter and thickened flax meal. Pour your wet ingredients into your flour mixture and fold everything together.
  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon, scoop batter onto the sheet. Do your best to make them the same size, because they will be sandwiched together. Bake for 12-14 minutes until slightly brown on top. Let cool. Scoop your grape jam (or your favorite filling) and spread it on the bottom of a cookie. Take another cookie and sandwich them together. Enjoy!

  2. Place the skins in a medium-sized bowl and the pulp in a medium sauce pan.

  5. Separate the seeds with a sieve or by hand. 
  6. Place mixture back into the saucepan and add maple syrup.

  8. Pour into a small bowl or jar and add chia. 
  9. Mix throughly or shake the jar until the chia is combined. 
  10. Let the jam thicken in the fridge for a couple of hours before topping cookies.
