DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the rolled oats and almonds in a blender or food processor and process until this is the consistency of flour.
  • Pour into a large bowl and add the spelt flour.
  • Combine the oil with the maple syrup and brown rice syrup. Mix well.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Make 1-inch sized balls with your hands [you can use some oil on your palms, if needed] and press flat onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
  • Make an indentation with your thumb into the center of each cookie.
  • Fill each cookie with a teaspoonful of jam.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • NOTE: Tiptree makes the best jams - with the purest ingredients -- the raspberry seedless is awesome, the morello cherry jam, all of them really - amazon.com has them online.
  • Also, you could substitute any nut flour or gluten-free flour [pamela's pancake and baking mix is widely accepted as one of the best - also available on amazon.com].
