Almond Jammy Heart Cookies

Almond Jammy Heart Cookies

These are the perfect Valentin’s treat to make with the little people, that won’t send everyone round the sugar bend.

They taste so good they don’t need to be saved up for Valentine’s.


  • ½ Cup Butter/ Coconut Oil
  • ½ Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Cup Ground Almonds
  • 1 Cup Rice Flour
  • ½ Cup Shredded/Desiccated Coconut unsweetened
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • Approx ¼ Cup Raspberry or Strawberry Jam

    (See my Chia berry Jam recipe)

Makes approx 14


Melt the butter or oil in a small pan with the maple syrup. Leave to cool slightly. Combine the rice flour, ground almonds and shredded coconut in a mixing bowl and pour over the liquid mixture. Add a pinch of sea salt and the almond extract. Combine thoroughly, it will seem quite wet and sticky but have faith!

Using cling film or parchment paper, place the dough in the middle, on a rolling surface, and cover with another layer of film, rollout to approx 5mm thick.

Cut out rounds with a cookie cutter, and make small heart shapes in half of them. Be careful they may seem bendy and fragile now.

Bake on a lined sheet for 8-10 minutes at 180 until turning golden.

Cool on a wire rack when they will crisp up nicely.

Teaspoon a little jam on the heartless cookies spreading around the centre evenly. Then cover with a heart holed one, creating a sandwich of almond jamminess.

  1. Hi…..what can you instead of rice flour ….thanks x

  2. Made them yesterday …. Yummy…. Kids loved them too ….bonus

  3. Can I ask how big is the cup as don’t usually know how much to use and and wanting to make these for a birthday treat at the end of the month.

  4. Ok thank you I assume a teacup? Sorry for asking but new to this baking lark and want to get it right.

  5. I made these today and turned out ok apart from I don’t think the one cup for rice flour is adequate as this was not enough mixture. I looked up what one cup would be in ounces and it said about 10. I made about 12 but out more flour and coconut. Perhaps you could clarify the measurements in grams/ounces please. Thank you

      Hi there, I use cups on purpose to prevent weighing and measuring as an extra pain. These work with 1 cup but perhaps they weren’t rolled quite thinly enough. I love these biccies. ❤️

  6. Yes they tasted lovely but one cup of flour didn’t seem enough. Maybe I’ll do them again with your actual cup measurements plus smaller cutter and roll thinner haha
