1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 chia egg (1 tbsp chia seeds, 4 tbsp water)
pinch sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine chia seeds and water to create chia egg. Set aside until ready to use. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking powder. In a larger bowl, add together sugar, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Blend together and add in chia egg and almond butter. Add in flour mixture slowly and blend again until smooth and forms cookie dough. Scoop into balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.
