Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

I always find thumbprints fun to make, but also they don't take a ton of time to make! These are filled with a creamy chocolatey filling and they're delicious.





makes 28 cookies


cookie

2 c buckwheat flour

1 c coconut sugar

1/2 c coconut oil

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla extract


filling

1/4 c soft dates

1/4 c melted coconut butter

1/4 c milk of choice

2 tbsp cacao powder


Preheat oven to 200°C/ 390°F (180°C fan) and line a couple baking trays with parchment paper.

For the filling, place all the ingredients in a blender or high-speed food processor and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Mix the cookie ingredients together in a large bowl until combined. Roll the cookie dough into balls and space them out on a lined baking tray. Use your thumb or a rounded end of a wooden spoon, to press an indent in the centre of the cookie.

Place in the centre of the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool before spooning the chocolate filling in the middle of each cookie and enjoy!
