Gluten Free Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies are a soft and buttery cookie filled with the raspberry jam of your choice! They’re lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, have a bright & flavorful filling, and are complete with a simple icing drizzle. This healthier take on the classic cookie is truly melt-in-your-mouth delicious!




Icing Drizzle


  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the softened butter, egg, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  You can use an electric mixer, but a whisk should work fine too!
  3. Next add in the dry ingredients – almond flour, oat flour, baking powder, and salt.  Combine evenly.
  4. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove from the fridge and roll about tablespoon sized scoops into balls.  Place on a greased or parchment paper lined baking tray.  Flatten the cookies and make little holes in the center of each cookie with your fingers.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes.
  7. Remove and fill each of the cookies with 1-2 tsp of the raspberry jam.
  8. Bake for another 8 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool.  While cooling make the icing by simply combining the powdered sugar and almond milk until smooth.
  10. Once the cookies have cooled drizzle each one with the icing.
  11. Enjoy!
