  • Whisk flaxseed meal, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Stir peanut butter, applesauce, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; mix into flaxseed meal mixture until dough is just mixed. Spoon dough onto a baking sheet, pressing a wet fork into each cookie to flatten.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Coconut oil can be used in place of butter if desired.

Golden flaxseed meal is preferred.

I substituted canola oil for the butter and added 1/4 cup of Truvia and a half bag of Enjoy Life chocolate chunks. The dough was pretty moist so I refrigerated it for an hour and then baked the cookies at 375 degrees (not 400) for 14 minutes. Delicious! Read More

just made these Tonight. followed all on the direction's. they were very bland. I'm not even into sweets and even I thought they needed something sweeter. I think next time I'll use a teaspoon of honey. the texture was good and the recipe was easy. Read More

I was afraid the cookies wouldn't hold up that they would fall apart but they held up great!!! I really liked them!!! I was also afraid they wouldn't be sweet enough for my husband which they weren't. I definitely plan on making them again but will add some coconut sugar chopped raw organic dates and lots of organic raisins. Read More

I added 1/4 brown sugar and it still doesn't taste as sweet peanut buttery as I prefer. I like the idea of flax seed in it though. Read More

For healthy food is good but for others who likes more favor is not a recommendation. Read More
