If you don’t eat dairy, these are just as good as my regular lactation cookies but without eggs  or butter. Enjoy! This recipe is from Michelle at Honeyed Home.



3 tablespoon flaxmeal

½ cup warm water

2 ¼ cups old fashioned oatmeal

1 ¾ whole wheat flour

5 tablespoon brewers yeast

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup coconut oil (solid at room temperature)

1 cup white sugar

½ brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons almond butter(either salted or unsalted)

1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (use vegan if needed)



1.     Add the flaxmeal and warm water in a small bowl and let stand for at least 5 minutes until it becomes a little thick and a bit congealed. This is your flax-egg.

2.     Combine: oats, whole-wheat flour, brewers yeast, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl and whisk with a fork to combine.

3.     In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, add coconut oil and sugars. Mix until fluffy. Add the vanilla, almond butter and mix until just combined. Add the flax-egg and whisk to combine. Slowly add the flour mixture. Do not over mix. Fold in chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.

4.     Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

5.     Once dough is chilled, scoop out enough batter to make 1” balls placing them on the cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes. Put left over dough in the fridge while first batch is baking.

6.     When cookies are ready, let them cool before  enjoying them.
