Recipe type: Dessert, Cookie
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup softened coconut oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract or ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1.5-2 cups of whole wheat flour
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • Filling of your choice-I used natural strawberry jam, but any filling will be great in these.
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Place a sheet of baking paper onto your tray and spray with some oil.
  3. Mix together the oil, honey, egg and extract. After it is combined add in 1.5 cups of flour, baking powder and salt. Mix and keep adding flour to get a dough that will no longer stick to your hands much, but it can be a bit sticky still. Let the dough sit for a few minutes while you prep your working space to roll it out.
  4. Roll out the dough so it is thin, but not too thin. About an ⅛ of an inch thick.
  5. Cut out rounds using the lip of a round glass or an empty nut butter container like I did. Keep doing that till all the dough is used up.
  6. Make an imprint into the middle of each round with your thumb and place ½-1 tsp of your filling of choice there.
  7. Pinch together the sides to create the triangular shape. Pinch it well!
  8. Carefully lift and place onto your greased baking sheet.
  9. Bake for around 10 minutes till it gets a bit golden. Watch it so they do not overcook. You may need 5 more minutes depending on your oven.
  10. Let them cool before tasting. They will harden more as they cool.
Notes
I like to use a baking paper to roll out my dough on so it is easier clean up.
The dough should not stick much to the paper or rolling pin, but if it does you can sprinkle on a little flour.
