Serves: 24 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1 cup oat flour (just take rolled oats and throw them in your food processor)
  • ½ cup almond flour (just take almonds and throw them in your food processor until they resemble a "crumb-y" flour)
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (or finely chopped chocolate)
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or agave (I used maple syrup)
  • 1¼ tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. Mix together the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients, including the flax egg. Yes, add every last ingredient to your bowl!
  4. Scoop about 2 tbsp of the cookie "dough" and form into balls. Place them on your prepared baking sheet, and flatten slightly with your hand.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottoms. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before handling.
