Creamy salted caramel tucked into a chewy chocolate cookie makes for the ultimate dessert time win. No one will know the cookies are made with almond flour, the caramel is made with tahini, and these are actually healthy!
Imagine your favorite chocolate cookie in the whole entire world. Now imagine it filled with creamy, ooey gooey caramel. We aren’t done. Now imagine that topped with a few flakes of sea salt. We are talking DESSERT HEAVEN with this one and I promise you no one will EVER even think to guess that these are healthy.
But they are 🙂 The cookies are made with almond flour, the caramel is made with tahini, both are sweetened with agave and no added sugar, and they make the perfect combination to satisfy any sweet tooth!
If you don’t believe me, you will just need to try for yourself!
Let’s Make Some Salted Caramel Chocolate Thumbprint Cookies!
Okay so are you ready to make THE MOST DELICIOUS cookie you will ever taste?? Okay great. So lets get to it. All you gotta do is mix your dry ingredients separate from your wet, combine, and boom! Ready to go to dessert heaven.
I will make one point – and I don’t know if this is weird so sorry if it is – but I measured my butter after melting it. So when you go for that 1/3 cup, that measurement is of your melted butter, not before.
I just eye balled how much dough I took to form each cookie, trying to make them similar, and I made 15. It worked out perfectly, they were a great size and one batch of my caramel filled them just perfectly!
Oh yeah – for the caramel recipe be sure to check out my post – easy tahini vegan salted caramel. Its some of the best stuff I’ve ever made and it is what you will be filling these with.
One more note about the caramel. In the directions on that post I say to let the caramel cool and then add salt to it. But in this recipe I actually just waited and did not add salt until it was in the cookie and I topped them. That is because I wanted it to be runny enough to get in there easily. Either way will work but just a tip!
Lastly – don’t over-bake the cookies! I am so bad at that. Pro at burning cookies over here. You just want the edges to be golden brown (I know that is a little hard with chocolate cookies but just look closely!) And you can feel them to see if they seem sturdy or still super doughy. They will continue to bake more once you take them out while they are still on the cookie sheet.
In addition to the listed ingredients, you will need:
- a cookie sheet
- parchment paper
- a large mixing bowl
- a small, microwavable mixing bowl
