Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 18 cookies
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds or ground chia seeds
  • 12 ounces dairy-free, gluten-free granola
  • ⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon brown rice flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup agave nectar (can sub another liquid sweetener)
  • ¼ cup sunflower, safflower, or grapeseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life Minis; optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F or 325°F for a convection oven, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the warm water and flax or chia seeds.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the granola, rice flour, tapioca starch, baking powder, xanthan gum, and starch.
  4. In a mixing bowl, mix the agave, oil, flaxseed mixture, molasses, and vanilla with a hand mixer for a few minutes.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix just until combined. The dough will absorb the liquid as it sits. Fold in the chocolate chips, if using.
  6. With a 1-ounce scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  8. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
