  • 1 c. finely ground walnuts
  • 1 c. whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 c. oat flour
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/3 c. maple syrup
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. organic canola oil or high-oleic safflower oil
  • 2 T. almond butter
  • 3-4 T. raspberry jam


Preheat oven to 350. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.  Mix the maple syrup, vanilla, oil and almond butter in a separate bowl, then mix with the flour mixture just until combined.  Form into balls about 1 1/4 inches in diameter and place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper (you can put them quite close together – they don’t spread much.) Make an indentation in each using your thumb and fill with about 1/4 t. jam. Bake for 16 minutes, until they start to turn slightly golden on the edges.
