Almond Butter Flax Cookies




Yield 12 Cookies



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.

flax cookiesDr 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.
