Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

There is nothing better than a healthy cookie that doesn’t compromise on taste! I’m a sucker for thumbprint cookies, and these are as tasty as they are healthy! They only require 5 ingredients and they are perfect for any occasion. 

Ingredients For Cookies:

Optional: vanilla bean powder or vanilla extract, seasame seeds, sea salt 

Ingredients For Filling: 

- 2 cups of fresh or frozen raspberries

- 3 tbsp chias 

- 1 tbsp maple syrup 

Method for Filling: 

1. Add raspberries to a pot over medium heat, as them melt down lightly press with fork to make a jam like consistency. 

2. As the raspberries turn into a more liquid like texture, add chia seeds and remove from heat. 

3. Mix chia seeds and maple syrup well into the raspberries and let sit for 10 minutes.
