Copycat Trader Joe’s Thumbprint Cookies ❣️ Paleo, Healthy and Minimal ingredients 👊☕️ We got the similar ones from @traderjoes last time and my god – sooo many weird ingredients 😞 We love these bite sized cookies on the go or for weekday snacks. So I decided to create the healthy paleo & gluten free version with minimal + cleanest ingredients. Recipe video linked here.

👊Almond Flour

👊Coconut Oil

👊Maple Syrup

👊Cardamom Powder

👊Sea Salt

👊Vanilla Extract

🍫 Chocolate or any berry Jam for topping. I used chocolate in my recipe.

INGREDIENTS – (makes about 14 bite sized cookies)

  • 1 cup almond flour (I buy from Costco)
  • 2-3 tbsps coconut oil (soft, at room temperature)
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup organic maple syrup
  • a pinch of cardamom powder
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • 70% dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven at 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix it thoroughly with hand (make sure your hand is clean or else use a silicone spatula)
  • Use a kitchen weight to and scoop approx 20 gm dough or use a 1 tbsps scooper or best use your judgement 😅
  • Roll into balls, and use your thumb to press an indentation into each cookie ball
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Then top off each cookie with 3-4 chocolate chips (if you are use a fruit jam now is the time to add 1/4 – 1/2 tbsp of jam) and bake for another 3 minutes.
  • Spread the chocolate with back of the spoon and then freeze for 15mins for chocolate to harden.
  • Serve as is or with coffee ☕️ 
  • Bon Appetit 🎉🎉
