  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside
  • In a small cup, stir together the flax seed and water. Set aside
  • In a medium bowl, with a hand blender, beat together the SunButter and palm shortening until creamy
  • Beat in the brown sugar, Stevia in the Raw, vanilla, and the flax water mixture
  • Add the sorghum flour and salt to the SunButter mixture and beat together until blended and a thick but crumbly dough forms. Press the dough together into a large ball
