These Paleo Caramel Thumbprint cookies are about to turn your world upside down. I mean, you guys know that I am the queen of all things cookies related. My Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies are so famous, they deserve a feature in Bon Appetit Mag (Hello, Bon Appetit, are you listening?!?!). I have also perfected another paleo thumbprint cookie, the Paleo Raspberry Chia Thumbprint Cookies, which you guys love! So trust me when I tell you, that these are THAT GOOD. Maybe Bon Appetit will come knocking at my door this time.
I would recommend that you not make any substitutions to this recipe. I have tried to substitute the eggs for flax eggs, and while it will work, the cookie itself will be a little flatter. If you don’t mind that, then be my guest. As far as the flours, I frequently combine almond flour and coconut flour, because the two together produce a cookie with more texture. I find that almond flour alone falls a little short of the perfect shortbread cookie texture, but again, if you avoid coconut flour, then just omit it, and the recipe will work with just almond flour!
My boys love making these cookies with me. They look forward to the caramel sauce, which turns out nice and thick, like you’d get from an ice cream shop. But healthier.
I hope you guys love this recipe, and if you make it, be sure to leave a comment for me below and tag me on Instagram so I can repost!
