Preheat oven 350 . Prepare 2 large baking sheets grease or line with parchment paper
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy. I used a hand mixer
In a blender, add flax seed powder and water and blend it until its foamy
Add the flax seed mixture add vanilla extract to the creamed butter. Stir it well using a wooden spoon/spatula.
In a medium size bowl sift together the flour , baking soda, salt and cinnamon
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and combine it well using a spatula
now stir in the oats and other optional ingredients you wish
drop the batter by tablespoon 2 inches apart. I used ice cream scooper
wet your hands and flatten the cookies so that they are about 1/2 inch thick
bake it 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the centre is little wet.
Remove it from the oven and let it cool in the baking sheet itself for 5 minutes. Then transfer it to a wire rack to cool it completely.
