  • ¼ cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 cups of gluten-free old fashioned oats
  • 3-4 tablespoons of milkadamia Unsweetened milk
  • 1 tablespoon of flax meal (soak flax meal in 3 tablespoons of water for 10 min. prior to adding. The flax mixture behaves like an egg)

  3. Mix butter, sugars and vanilla and flax mixture for 30 seconds on medium
  4. Fold in dry mix of flour, soda, salt, cinnamon – mix on medium or low (not too much, maybe 30 seconds to a minute max)
