For the strawberry chia jam

  • 8 oz. fresh strawberries chopped
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the cookies

  • 1⅓ cup blanched almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • tsp salt
  • ¼ cup strawberry chia jam


For the jam

  • In a small saucepan, combine the strawberries and maple syrup. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently. After 5 minutes, when the mixture is starting to release juices, use a potato masher (or a fork) to lightly mash the strawberries.
  • Add the chia seeds and reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue cooking uncovered, stirring occasionally to prevent the bottom from scorching, for about 10 minutes or until the mixture has thickened. Remove from heat.

For the cookies

  • In a medium bowl, mix almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Divide the dough into 15 balls. Make an imprint in the center of each cookie with your thumb and fill each imprint with the strawberry chia jam, about 1 heaping teaspoon per cookie.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
