    Recipe Notes

    *For a vegan cookie, replace the egg with 1 chia egg. (1 tablespoon ground chia seeds whisked into 3 tablespoons water and left to set for 5 minutes in the fridge. Use then the way you would the normal egg)

    *For a refined sugar-free cookie, replace the sugar with 8 pitted dates, blended to a puree. The mixture will be a little stickier before going into the oven but comes out pretty much the same cookie consistency.
