directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine flour, flax seeds, cinnamon and salt. Pour in syrup and oil and mix just until all the flour's been absorbed.
  • Allow the dough to sit for 5-10 minutes before rolling into walnut-sized balls (or slightly larger) and placing them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
  • Press down on each ball gently with you index and middle finger - they'll flatten and you'll make a nice wavy impression in the cookie.
  • Slide in the oven and bake for 13 minutes. Allow to cool on a rack, or eat 'em warm with a tall glass of non-dairy milk.

    These are great! So tasty! I halved the recipe and still got a little over a dozen cookies, so you must have been making some pretty big ones. Anyway, I replaced the maple syrup with butter flavoured E. D. Smith's because that's all I had, and these were fantastic. I'll make these easy treats again sometime!

    Tasty and easy! I used honey instead of maple syrup because that is what I had. Also used canola oil. They aren't a super-sweet treat but will be a good snack for my toddler!

    These are very tasty; they even surpassed my expectations. I ground the flax seeds first. The dough looked too wet before baking, but they turned out nicely. I got 23 2- to 2-1/4-inch cookies.
