Sharing is caring!

Jammie dodgers are a popular British treat using two shortbread biscuits sandwiched with a layer of raspberry jam. This homemade version is healthier and easy to make using only 6 ingredients and 30 minutes to make. These jammie dodgers are gluten free, vegan and contain no added sugar. The perfect treat to have with a cuppa tea. 

Jammie dodgers are childhood nostalgia at its core. Well for me at least these were one of my favourites.  

Before Oreos came to the UK, it was jammie dodgers that were the perfect filled sandwich biscuit. At least in my opinion anyway. While there are similarities between the two biscuits. Oreos are chocolate biscuits with a crème filling. Whereas jammie dodgers are a vanilla biscuit with a raspberry jam filling.

Now both biscuits are equally as tasty, Oreos are great to dunk into a glass of cold milk whether that be non-dairy or cow’s milk. Jammie dodgers go great with a warm cup of English tea.  

Recreating British classic biscuits has been great fun. I’ve previously made bourbon biscuits and custard creams. Although not a British biscuit I’ve also recreated the Oreo biscuit.  

If you have any more biscuits you want me to recreated then drop me a comment below and I will give them a go.  

Why make your own jammie dodgers

Firstly its cheaper to make your as store brought gluten free and vegan jammie dodgers are around £1.90 a packet which is significantly more expensive than the leading brand normal jammie dodgers. That usually cost around 50p.

Secondly it is healthier to make your own as you know exactly what ingredients are being used. You can also cater them to accommodate any food requirements or dietary requirements.

Ingredients used: 

Gluten free plain flour

Almond flour

Coconut oil

Granulated sugar

UHT coconut milk

Baking powder

bite shot of biscuit


How to create the biscuit shape  

To create the authentic splosh pattern on top of the biscuit. I used a set of stamp cookie cutters I bought off of amazon they are made by a company called dexam. The set comes with 4 different cookie cutters. Custard creams, jammie dodgers, bourbon biscuits and party ring. The only one I haven’t used yet is the party ting cutter.  

Of course, you don’t need to use a special jammie dodger cutter a simple round cutter will work just as well. To punch out the center of one of the biscuits you can either use a straw or the tip of an icing nozzle.

Creating the jam filling 

The classic filling is a raspberry jam I created a homemade jam using a frozen berry mix, water and chia seeds. You could use any type of fruit you like to create your jam, which is half the fun of making your own jam.

For this jam recipe I choose to use a forest fruit mix from asda. Which contains raspberries, red currants and blackcurrants. This creates a delicious mix of sweet and tart flavours. When sandwiched between the vanilla shortbread biscuits it becomes a gorgeous sweet and fruity light biscuit.  

Final Result  

A deliciously light vanilla shortbread biscuit sandwiched with a sweet and fruity jam layer. Great to have with afternoon tea or makes a great little treat for lunchboxes.
