  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

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

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.
