In a food processor, add rolled oats, almond meal, coconut sugar and sea salt. Pulse to blend until oats become gritty like almond meal. Set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together coconut oil, egg, vanilla and maple syrup. Slowly stir in pulsed oat mixture until well-combined cookie dough. Chill for 35 minutes.
While dough chills, add strawberry preserves and vanilla into a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine & set aside.
Shape chilled dough into twelve cookie balls (about 2 tablespoons ea.). Roll into a disk, then use your thumb to press into the center of each. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned and dry to the touch.
Use your thumb to reinforce the center, then dollop strawberry mixture evenly into each cookie. The jam will set as it cools.
