100% Flax Breakfast Cookies {grain-free, vegan, oil-free, paleo, keto option}


Description

5-ingredient grain-free, vegan, oil-free and paleo breakfast cookies made with 100% flax (no other flours or meals)! They are crispy, chewy, nutty, and made with ease in a muffin tin. A keto option is available, too!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) unsweetened natural nut butter (e.g., almond, cashew, peanut)
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) nondairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) maple syrup (see notes for keto)
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup (80 g) flaxseed meal
  • 2/3 cup (100 g) raisins (omit for keto)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease or spray the cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the nut butter, maple syrup, milk, optional vanilla and cinnamon, until blended. Stir in the flaxseed meal and raisins until combined.
  3. Evenly divide batter into prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 22 minutes, until golden brown, the surface of the cookies appears dry, and the centers feel just firm to the touch.
  5. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run knife around edges to loosen, then remove and place on rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Nut-Free Cookies: For nut-free cookies, use an equal amount of creamy seed butter (e.g. sunflower butter or tahini) in place of the nut butter.
  • Storage Tip: Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature 2 days, the refrigerator for 1 week, or the freezer for up to 6 months.
  • Keto Option: Use an equal amount of keto-friendly liquid sweetener in place of the maple syrup. Leave out the raisins.
