Nutty- Butter Scotch Thumbrint Cookies - Vegan Cookies

Nice and nutty, and delicately sweet.

These thumbprint cookies are loaded with walnuts, and sweetened with dates and coconut sugar, which adds a rich caramel taste. To make these cookies extra scrumptious, I filled their centers with sticky caramel in one batch and butter scotch in an another.

These thumbprint cookies are easy-to-make, and a perfect treat for any occasion. They also pairs deliciously with a warm cuppa cocoa, tea or coffee.


  • 3 cups flour

  • 1 Cup Coconut Sugar

  • 1 Cup Chopped Dates

  • 3/4 Cup- 1 Cup Chopped Walnuts

  • 2/3 Cup Coconut Oil

  • 1/2 Cup Oat Milk

  • 2 tsp Vanilla

  • Pinch salt

  • 2 tsp Baking Powder

  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda

Thumbprint Filling

  • Coconut Caramel

  • Coconut Butter Scotch Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. Add flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, chopped dates and walnuts to a mixing bowl and stir to combine.

  3. Pour in the coconut oil, oat milk and vanilla and mix until it forms a dough. Note: the dough may seem a bit crumbly but not to worry, its perfect.

  4. Scoop your cookie dough (approximately 2 Tbl of dough) onto a lined or non stick baking tray. Then use you hands to press and shape the cookies. Now, use your thumb or the back of a spoon to press the center of each cookie.

  5. Fill each thumbprint center with a 1/2-1 tsp scoop of coconut caramel or butter scotch.

  6. Pop in the oven and bake for approximately 12-14 minutes.

  7. Cool and serve.

  8. These cookies are especially delicious paired with a warm cuppa tea, cocoa or coffee.
