1-½teaspoonsground flaxseed (or flax meal)
1tablespoonTruvia Baking Blend
2tablespoonsTruvia Brown Sugar Blend
¼cupquick cooking rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Alternatively, use an ungreased sheet pan.
Prepare the "flax egg" by stirring together 1-½ teaspoons ground flaxseed with 4-½ teaspoons water in a small bowl.
In a medium bowl, add the almond butter, Truvia Baking Blend, Truvia Brown Sugar Blend, flax egg, coconut extract and baking soda until thoroughly combined. Stir in the oats.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Carefully flatten balls with a fork or the bottom of a glass.
Baked for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are set and turn golden.
Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store leftover cookies in an airtight container.
The original recipe calls for ½ large egg, beaten (or 2 tablespoons egg substitute). Because I wanted to keep these cookies egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free, I decided to substitute a "flax egg" instead.When baking cookies, 1 large egg can be replaced with 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed plus 3 tablespoons water. And because this recipe only makes 12 cookies and requires ½ egg, I substituted 1-½ teaspoons ground flaxseed combined with 4-½ teaspoons water.Optional mix-ins: shredded coconut, mini chocolate chips, peanut butter baking chips, chopped raisins, etc.Serving size: 1 cookieClick here to see your WW Points for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site.3*PointsPlus (Old plan)
