  3. Add solidified coconut oil, and work through dry flour mixture with hands or a pastry cutter until flour mixture is crumbly like sand.
  4. Add almond milk and flaxmeal mixture and mix until a ball of dough is created.
  5. Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead about 10 times.
  6. Measure out a tablespoon of dough at a time. Roll into a ball and place on a lined baking sheet. Repeat until all dough has been used.
