Meatless Monday - Jelly

Today's Meatless Monday food is Jelly.
Mmmmmmmmmmmm, Jelly! Or as we call it in Australia - Jam!
There is only one brand of jam that I will buy and its St Dalfour.
I love their jam and the range of flavours.
My favourite flavour is Four Fruits.... 
So that is what you'll find in today's recipe!

Chewy Walnut Jam Cookies
You'll need:
1 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
1/3 cup raw sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup soymilk (or other plant milk of choice)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons ground flax seeds mixed with 2 Tablespoons water
1/2 cup jam (flavour of choice - I used four fruits)

Mix the flaxseeds with the water and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well.
Crush the walnuts and add them to the dry mixture.
Make a well in the centre of the mixture and pour in the applesauce, soymilk, vanilla and flax seed mixture.
Gently stir until all ingredients are well combined.
Scoop large tablespoons full of the mixture and place onto a lined baking tray. Use the back of the spoon to make a well in the centre of each cookies.
Pour 1/2 teaspoon of jam into the centre of each cookie.
Bake in a preheated 180C oven for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool before eating as the jam will be bubbling hot.

Makes 14 large cookies

Question of the day:
Do you have a favourite flavour jam?


  1. So I actually think there's a technical difference between jelly & jam that I have no idea about, but I don't think it's a cultural one. I would guess we all mislabel what they are. :)

    Either way - I want one of these cookies!

    1. Did you see the link I posted in your comments - explains the difference! In my opinion - hardly any hehehe ;-)

  2. Oh, yum! These sound like my sort of jam drop biscuits :)
