- 1 ½ tablespoons finely ground flaxseed meal
- 2 tablespoons water
- ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
- ¼ cup nut butter I used almond
- 1 tablespoon oil
- ¼ cup granulated sweetener I used cane sugar
- 1 tablespoon oat milk or other nondairy milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup + 3 tablespoons oat flour (blended oats)
- ⅓ cup fine, blanched almond flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon oat flour
- 1 tablespoon rolled oats
- 1 ½ tablespoon oil
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the flaxseed meal with water and let it sit to gel for 5-10 minutes. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients: applesauce, nut butter, oil, milk, sugar, and vanilla. Fold in the dry: oat flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Place on the prepared baking sheet in 2 tablespoon-sized scoops and flatten into cookiie shapes (they will not spread much).
In a separate small bowl, combine all the streusel ingredients: oats, oat flour, sugar, oil, and cinnamon. Evenly distribute among the cookies and bake for about 13 minutes. Let them cool before trying to pick them up (they can crumble easily when hot). Enjoy!
