November 28, 2012
adapted from CHIP

  • 2-1/2 c. walnut pieces
  • 2/3 c. oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 c. flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup + up to 2 T. more
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Directions for 18 cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; use parchment paper or grease cookie sheets
  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
  6. Let cool before removing from the cookie sheet
Notes: Add up to 2 T. more syrup if needed to hold the cookies together. You can grind oatmeal in a good blender to make oat flour, or also make these with whole wheat pastry if GF isn't an issue!
