1 cup almond flour
1 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup oatmeal flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp ground chia seeds
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Mix the ground chia seeds with water and soak for a few minutes; this will be your egg replacer. You can use a whole egg if not vegan.
Mix the almond, oatmeal and wholemeal flour with the coconut sugar and spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger and salt).
Add the soaked chia seeds, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
Combine the ingredients with your hands until you form a dough. If your dough is very dry you can add a tablespoon of water at a time until it gets wet enough. You are looking for a soft dough that doesn't stick to your hands.
Sprinkle a little bit of wholemeal flour into a surface and spread the dough with the help of a rolling pin, about an inch thick.
Cut cookies with christmas cookie cutters (or your favorite ones!)
Place them on a baking sheet and bake at 350ºF (180ªC) for 12 to 16 minutes or until they are crunchy and lightly brown.
