These cookies are free of gluten, tree nuts, grain, refined sugar, and all animal products. They're even low FODMAP. These melt-in-your-mouth cookies may taste indulgent, but are actually quite healthy!
Servings: 12 cookies
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk the chia seeds with hot water to make an "egg". Set aside for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix the peanut butter, maple syrup, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Add the chia "egg" to the other ingredients. Mix well.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Form the dough into balls 1-2 inches in diameter. Flatten them slightly and bake for about 8 minutes.
Let the cookies rest for 10 minutes on a baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.
Ground flaxseed can be used in place of chia seeds.
Other nut or seed butters can substitute for peanut butter.
