Growing up oatmeal cookies were always my favourite! Naturally, it's been my mission to find a healthy replacement that's 100% nutritionist approved!

So I created these little bites of heaven:
Maple Oatmeal Flax Cookies
1 cup almond meal
1 cup spelt flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup whole flax seeds
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax combined with 3 tbsp warm water. Stir. Let stand 10 minutes)
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl: almond meal, spelt flour, oats, ground flax, whole flax seeds, chia seeds, baking powder, baking soda & sea salt.
In a small bowl mix wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup & vanilla extract.
Pour wet ingredients into bowl of dry ingredients with flax egg and combine.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon's worth onto cookie sheet and slightly flatten them out.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Once cooled, these will store in an airtight container refrigerated for about 1 week.
