The Make Your Own Zone
Flax Egg Replacement
(1 Tbl Ground Flax Seed + 2-1/2 Tbl Water)
White Whole Wheat Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Begin by making the Flax Egg Replacement by combining 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed with 2-1/2 tablespoons of water. Set aside to thicken up slightly.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, date sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, the almond milk, the molasses, and vanilla. Then stir in the flax egg.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, Mix until well combined. The dough will be somewhat thick and "fudgey" looking.
Drop dough by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Pat the blobs of dough into cookie shapes using a moist piece of paper toweling to keep things from sticking to your fingers.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Then remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes before removing cookies from the cookie sheet.
