– Ground flaxseed – Rolled oats – Unsweetened shredded coconut – Baking powder – Baking soda – Sea salt – Almond butter – Pure maple syrup – Pure vanilla extract – Dried fruit – Pepitas, sunflower seeds, or nuts of choice – Hemp seeds
Prepare your flax egg. Whisk together the ground flaxseed meal and water and set aside for 15 minutes to gel up. In a large bowl, together the dry ingredients: oats, coconut, salt, baking powder, baking soda.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients until smooth and thick: almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and prepared flax eggs. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry. Use a silicone spatula to combine the ingredients until it resembles cookie dough.
Add desired mix-ins (chopped nuts or seeds and dried fruit or chocolate chips). Add hemp seeds and stir to evenly incorporate the mix-ins. Scoop about 3 tablespoons of dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets and lightly flatten.
Bake at 350ºF for 18-20 minutes, until lightly golden on the bottom. Cool the pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies directly to the wire rack.
