Servings: 18 cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. Let it sit for at least 10 minutes until it gels up and becomes a flax egg.
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl (almond flour and oat flour).
Add all of the wet ingredients to a smaller bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the flax egg as well when it is ready.
Pour wet ingredients into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. You will need to use your hands to mix it well.
Roll dough into balls (approximately 2 tablespoon each) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Gently press down with fingers and/or fork.
Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes, until the cookies start to brown on the bottom. Check carefully with a spatula (cookies will be quite soft).
This recipe makes approximately 18 cookies if you are using about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie.
If you make larger cookies, they may have to bake a couple minutes longer.
When you take these cookies out of the oven, they will be extremely soft. Allow them to cool a bit before moving them to a cooling rack, then allow them to cool completely before eating or storing.
