  • 1/3 c. flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup + up to 2 T. more
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Directions for 18 cookies:

  2. Grind walnuts
  3. Add all the ingredients in the order given to a small bowl; mix well
  4. Drop dough on cookie sheet with a spoon and flatten with a fork
  5. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown, checking often to prevent burning
