The thumbprint cookie is such a classic cookie. I have memories of eating handfuls of them off the dessert table at Christmas. We combined the thumbprint cookie with our toddler cookies and created this simple and delicious treat!

We love simple cookies and treats. The inspiration for this cookie is our Toddler Snack Cookies. They are one of our most popular posts and we knew that we could make those amazing little cookies even better.
I’ve made this thumbprint cookie with strawberry, raspberry, and apricot jelly. So far, I have to say that I think the apricot jelly is my favorite.
The recipe makes approximately 7 cookies. Depending on how big your banana is. It’s the perfect size for an afternoon snack with your little one. Plus it’s not loaded with a ton of sugar. Which is the best part!
Thumbprint Cookie Ingredients
- 1 Ripe Banana
- 1/2 Cup Oatmeal (I use quick oats)
- 1 Tablespoon Oil (I used Sunflower oil, melted coconut oil also works well)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Honey
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 Tablespoons jelly (any flavor will work, so far we’ve had success with strawberry, raspberry, and apricot)

Creating Thumbprint Cookies
In a bowl, combine banana, oatmeal, oil, honey, and cinnamon. Mix well. Scoop the mixture onto a cookie sheet. I like to use a 1-inch cookie scoop, but a spoon works too. Gently tap the cookies down into an even circle. Using either your finger or a utensil, create a small well into the center of each cookie. Fill the indent with a small scoop of jelly. Bake for 30 minutes. Let them cool on the pan for a minute or two and then move to a cooling rack.
These simple cookies will make a great addition to your Christmas cookie plate or just a lovely afternoon snack!
