Ingredients 

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 Tbsp hot water
  • 1 cup Crazy Richard's peanut butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Ground flaxseed can be used in place of chia seeds.
Other nut or seed butters can substitute for peanut butter.
