Notes

*I have made many variations of these cookies. Here are some things I have done.
  • You can add a 1/2 cup of shredded coconut.
  • I have added a Tbsp chia seeds, or fresh ground flaxseed.
  • The flax egg cookies taste just as good and worth doing to add extra fiber.
  • I have made these gluten free which I will make a separate post on because they were delicious!
  • I have used brown sugar in place of granulate sugar and they turn out great!
  • I have flattened these with a spoon before baking and made Ice cream sandwiches with them!
