Oat and Cashew Thumbprint Cookies With Berry Chia Jam [Vegan]



  • 2/3 cup cashews
  • 3/4 cup oats (I used plain rolled oats, you can find raw oats if you like)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Pinch Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 dates, cut into small pieces
  • Water, as needed (I used about 3 tablespoons)


To make the cookies:
  1. Process all the ingredients but the oats together in a food processor until they form a thick, chunky kind of cashew butter.
  2. Add the oats and pulse until it all starts sticking together.
  3. Form into thumbprint cookies and put in the fridge for a few hours so they can set.
To make the jam:
  1. Put all the ingredients except the chia seeds in a food processor and process until it's as smooth as desired.
  2. Mix in the chia seeds with a spoon, then fill each thumbprint cookie with the jam. Yussss.
