The base of these cookies is simply flax-meal made from grinding flaxseeds. It is a chewy cookie that satisfies both that sweet and salty craving, and is a great source of fibre. I use my smoothie maker to gently grind them to more of a flour, but you can use a food processor or even a coffee grinder, or you can just but the flax-meal already done. They are more savoury than sweet, but go ahead and add more sugar if you like a sweeter cookie.
You will need:
1/4 cup flaxseeds (grind these into a flour)
1/2 cup organic desiccated coconut
4 heaped tbsp crunchy peanut butter
2 large free range eggs
4 heaped tbsp coconut sugar
Preheat oven to 180 C. In a bowl beat the eggs, and add the sugar. Mix in the peanut butter and combine well. Add the flax-meal and coconut and mix until you can form balls from the mixture.
Form 22 small balls and press down with a folk onto a lined tray. These don’t take long to cook because they are small. Bake for around 7 minutes and cool on the tray. I added a little sprinkle of coconut when I served them.
Let me know if you make these, i’d love to hear how you went.
