Directions

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.

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.
