A crave-worthy cookie treat with tart raspberry and rich chocolate taste.
For the Dough:
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 flax egg if vegan or 1 egg
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup almond flour
Coconut sugar, used for rolling
10 -12 Hershey Kisses
For the Jam:
1 cup California Giant Raspberries
1 & 1/2 tsp maple syrup
1 & 1/2 tsp chia seeds
Splash of water
Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
For the jam, add the raspberries and maple to a saucepan and simmer for 5-10 minutes on medium-low heat. Mash the fruit as it simmers. Add a splash of water if needed. Allow the mixture to thicken and reduce down. Now add the chia seeds and mix well. Set aside to cool while you make the dough.
Add all the dough ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Roll the dough into small balls (about 1-2 tbsp of dough) and then roll them into the extra coconut sugar. Using your thumb, slightly press into the top of the circle, flattening the dough slightly. Pop the cookies into the oven to cook for 5 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add a small dollop of the jam into each cookie center and then add the Hershey Kiss right on top of the jam. Place back into the oven to cook for 5-7 minutes. Once the cookies are golden brown, remove from the oven and cool. Enjoy!
