Ingredients
Dry Ingredients
  • 1 cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (Good quality - very important)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Raisins (Handful)
  • Almonds (Handful)
Wet Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Melted Butter (2 oz)
  • 2 tbsp Milk
Instructions
  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl - Flax meal, cocoa powder, sugar, BP, almonds and raisins.

  2. Add melted butter to the dry ingredients and mix well. Splash in 1, then 2 tablespoons of milk until you get a wettish, crumbly mixture that you can mold.

  3. Using your hands or a cookie scoop, mold dough into a compact cookie shape and place in a non-stick baking pan. (Since there is no gluten, the physical stickiness of the flax holds this cookie together)

  4. Bake at 350 F for 9-10 minutes. Take them out once timer is done. Do NOT touch them until they cool. 

Recipe Notes

I used Trader Joe's Cocoa Powder. That is a really good cocoa powder without any bitterness. I am not a fan of Hershey's cocoa powder. Nestle cocoa powder is fine, less bitter than Hersheys.
