Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, mix the ground flax seeds with 6 tablespoons of water. Let it thicken while you prepare the other ingredients. This will be your flax egg.
In a medium-large bowl, add the vegan butter and brown sugar. Cream together, then stir in the maple syrup, flax egg and vanilla extract. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the flour, coconut, baking soda and salt. Stir to combine.
Transfer the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and combine. Don't overmix!
Form the dough into 16 balls and transfer them to the baking sheet. You might need to make two batches. Press your thumb in the center of each ball of dough to form a little well. Add about 1 heaping teaspoon of jam in each cookie.
Bake for 12 minutes at 350°F. Remove from the oven and let them cool on the pan for 10 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
