Servings 18 small cookies

- 1 cup almonds raw or oven roasted
- 1 Tablespoon (heaping) coconut flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (if you are making raw cookie dough bites, skip this step).
In a medium bowl, combine the ground flax seed with the water and mix together. Set aside to gel and thicken.
In a food processor, grind almonds until a course flour is formed. Add coconut flour, baking powder, and salt to the processor and process until the ingredients until they are mixed well. Set aside.
