Servings: 18 small cookies


  • 6 tbsp margarine* (90 g)
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar (56 g)
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour (125 g)
  • ¼ cup of almond flour (25 g)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • 3-4 tbsp jam whichever flavor you prefer


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • In a medium bowl, add the margarine, brown sugar and beat until creamy (it should take on a whitish color and a very smooth texture).
  • Add the whole wheat flour, almond flour, vanilla, salt, and fold them in.
  • Divide the dough into 18 parts (1 tablespoon per cookie), shape them into a ball and place them on a non-stick baking tray or a silicone mat / parchment paper.
  • Use your thumb to press the center of each ball into a small hole and fill it with jam (stuff a ziploc or piping bag with the jam, cut the tip and press lightly).
  • Bake at 350°F (175°C) for 12-14 minutes (until cookies are lightly golden brown). Turn the oven off and let the cookies rest inside for 4 more minutes.
  • Take the tray out the oven and allow to cool completely before removing the cookies. It is important to let them reach room temperature so that they can harden.
  • Store them in an airtight container in a cool place or in the fridge
