Lavender Dandelion Cookies
These are not a traditional cookie. These vegan cookies are great for backpacking and travel very well.
These are more like a healthy snack than a dessert. It's fun to give people a dandelion cookie because people get all weird about eating a weed. Be sure to gather unsprayed dandelions and use only the yellow petals; the green part is bitter.
I use an ungreased Calphalon cookie sheet. The cookies will stick to the pan slightly, but they're easier to remove when cooled. You can use egg instead of flaxseed, and milk instead of chia seed and water. To get fluffier cookies, use less oats, more flour, add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and cut in 2 teaspoons butter. I use steel-cut oats; rolled oats will yield a softer texture.
