Almond Butter Flax Cookies
Yield 12 Cookies
- 1 cup organic almond butter
- 1/2 cup organic apple sauce unsweetened
- 1/4 cup organic unsweetened cranberries
- 1 cup flax seed, ground
- 1/4 cup Honest Keto Maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- dash pink salt
Step #1: Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth; I recommend doing this quickly since the flax rapidly absorbs the moisture from the almond butter and applesauce.
Step #2: Once the dough is smooth, spray 2 stainless steel cookie sheets with coconut oil and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step #3: Roll the dough into little balls in your palms and place on the pan. Use your (greased) spatula to press the dough down to form a cookie.
Step #4: Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until brown (slightly more brown- the flax and almond butter are already brown 🙂 ).
Step #5: Ensure the cookie is sufficiently done by checking that it will not fall apart once cool. Cool cookies then devour.

Dr Jockers Comments:
These cookies are more of a rare desert than a snack. They are not on the ketogenic diet because they contain organic brown sugar. They are completely gluten-free and use all natural and organic ingredients so that is a huge step up over 99% of the cookies on the market. They taste out of this world good!
You could try to replace the brown sugar with stevia which is an all-natural sweetener that does not affect your blood sugar. This would be a great experiment to make this advanced healing diet approved. Remember stevia is 100x sweeter than sugar. I would recommend getting in the liquid dropper.
