Add to the wet mix: Flax Goo and molasses till blended, then add ~a little at a time~ the dry ingredients to the wet mix. Let the mix sit on the counter for about 5-10 minutes to let the flavors mix.
Form into 1 inch balls, dip just the top into turbinado sugar, then place on oiled cookie sheet, sugared side up. Place a few inches apart on sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for just a few minuntes on the sheet before transfering them to a cooling rack. Don't over cook or they will be hard when they cool.
