    Directions

    01

    Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C) and line baking sheet with parchment paper.

    02

    Grind oats in blender until coarse flour is formed. In medium bowl, combine oat flour with spelt or gluten-free flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In separate bowl, add vanilla, oil, and maple syrup. Add wet ingredients into dry, and stir until combined.

    03

    Form balls out of 1 Tbsp (15 mL) sized scoops and roll in ground walnuts. Place balls on parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and gently, with the tip of your finger, create a divot. Spoon about 1/2 tsp (2 mL) jam into centre of each cookie, then bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden.
