Peanut Butter and Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies

When I was a kid I remember going to the grocery store with my mom and we would always stop by the bakery so she could get my sister and I chocolate thumbprint cookies. They were magical and delicious. It was the cookie of my childhood. Now it seems like forever since I’ve heard anyone talk about a thumbprint cookie. I almost forgot they existed, until my mom mention a story that triggered my memory. I knew right then that my entire day would be spent trying to recreate the cookie from my past–a healthy version, of course!



Recipe makes 6 delicious-mouth watering-dangerously healthy cookies! For paleo use almond butter.

I got almost all of my ingredients from

  • 1/4 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Flour
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flax
  • 1 egg (Eliminate for vegan and double flax mixed with water)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Dark Chocolate Chips (Enjoy life for vegan)
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • Sea Salt for sprinkling
  • Sprinkles for rolling (optional but necessary)

Mix coconut flour, flax, sugar and baking powder together. Add peanut butter, vanilla and egg. Once everything is mixed together, use a cookie scoop to make 6 balls and roll them in sprinkles. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and press them down using the back of the cookie scoop, your thumb, a spoon or a melon baller–they all work perfectly. Bake for 7-8 minutes at 350f. While cookies are baking, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil. I used a small glass bowl over a smaller pot of boiling water. Fill your cookies with chocolate and let cool and enjoy!
