Time: 10 minutes + baking time | Servings: Makes 12 small cookies
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
- 1.5 tablespoons warm water
- 1 cup raw almond flour
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup
- 3 drops pure mint extract
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, stir flaxseed meal and water, let sit about 5 minutes until thickened/gel-like consistency.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flaxseed mixture, almond flour, coconut oil, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and mint.
3. Use a 1-tablespoon measuring spoon to make tiny rounds. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Gently press them flat with the bottom of a small drinking glass so they look like cookies instead of mounds. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden on the bottom.
4. Allow cookies to cool and store them in an airtight container for up to five days or freeze for up to three months.
