  • 2 cups whole-grain spelt flour
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • ½ cup ground, toasted nuts (any type!)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ⅓ cup liquid coconut oil

  • ¼ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix together spelt flour, oat bran, nuts, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together oil, ⅓ cup agave, lemon juice, zest, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, and stir gently to combine. Add seeds and stir until just incorporated.
  5. Measure scant ¼ cupfuls onto baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Flatten gently with your hands. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until just golden on top.
