Nutty & Seedy Thumbprint Cookies

Jammy, chewy, and delicious nutty thumbprint cookies




  • 60g / 2,1 oz pitted dates
  • 50g / 1,75 oz nuts and/or seeds of choice (I used almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds)
  • 3 tbsp oat- or nut- or other flour of choice
  • 1/3 tsp baking soda
  • Optionally but recommended 2 tbsp buckwheat
  • 1 tsp chia seeds


  • 2 tbsp fruit preserves/jam or mashed fresh fruit of choice
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds


  1. Firstly, mix the fruit preserve together with 1/2 tbsp chia seeds, set aside and let thicken up.
  2. Preheat the oven to 150ºC / 300ºF
  3. Process all the ingredients for the biscuits until combined. I like mine chunky but blend till wanted consistency is achieved.
  4. Divide into 12 small balls, place them out on a baking tray. Press a thumbprint into center of each ball and fill with a small spoonful of jam.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden. Afterwards, optionally turn off the oven and let the cookies “dry” for an extra 10 minutes while the oven is cooling down. Let cool and enjoy!
