Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups rolled oats
1 1/3 cup w.w. flour (or spelt)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2/3 cup raisins or chopped dried fruit
8 tbsp chocolate chips
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup flax meal (not flax seed)
1 cup pure maple syrup
6 Tbsp almond butter (may use cashew, peanut, hemp seed butter)
3 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl combine oats, flour, salt, cinnamon, coconut, raisins, chocolate chips and baking powder. In a small bowl whisk together flax meal, maple syrup, almond butter and vanilla. Stir in the wet ingredients into the dry and mix as little as possible (folding works well). Drop small balls onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 13 minutes.

Yields 3 dozen.
