Total Time: 15 mins
Serves: 12 cookies
1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon Simply Organic Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Allspice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons coconut flour
Raw turbinado sugar for sprinkling (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flax egg, almond butter, coconut sugar, molasses and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add the spices, salt, baking soda and coconut flour and beat again until a sticky dough forms.
Using a small cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the baking sheet, spacing the cookies at least 2" apart. Repeat until all the dough has been used.
Gently flatten the cookies with your hands and sprinkle with sugar. Bake on the center rack for 11 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Once cool, pack up and/or enjoy!
