Ingredients

Instructions

  • Make "chia eggs" by whisking together ground chia and water. Let sit for at least 5 mins.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine oats, almond flour, gluten-free flour, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon. Mix to combine.
  • In a separate smaller bowl, combine your wet ingredients: chia eggs, melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir to form a sticky dough. Add chocolate chunks and mix again. Cover bowl with clean dish towel and refrigerate cookie dough mixture for 20-30 minutes (this allows for easier, non-sticky rolling).
  • Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and gently form dough into balls, about the size of a golf ball. Place cookie dough balls on baking tray, approx. 2 inches apart from each other, and push down to flatten. Bake cookies for 10-12 mins. Or until golden and browned.

Notes

*To make ground chia: pulse chia seeds in a blender until powder like in texture. I like to do a big batch at a time and keep in a sealed jar in my pantry for baking. It's not necessary to grind the chia into powder, you can use the seeds whole - but I find it gives cookies a better texture when ground. Optional to also use ground flax instead of ground chia.
It's normal for the dough to feel a bit more sticky in texture. Refridgerating the dough for 20-30 minutes will help for a less sticky dough to roll with. Wash hands from time-to-time if dough gets too sticky when rolling.
If any chocolate chunks fall out while forming, press them into the top of the cookies after flattening them onto a baking tray.
