.25 C flaxseed meal
6 T water
2/3 C oil
.25 C plain, unsweetened non-dairy milk
2 C sugar
2 T molasses
1 t salt

Creaming method. Incorporate the milk into the sugar along with the oil and molasses.

Bake at 350ºF on lined sheets until light golden brown, 12-14 minutes.

Whole Wheat
This recipes lends itself to whole wheat adaptation very easily. One can replace up to 2/3 of flour with whole wheat white flour without noticably affecting the flavor.

simply use a non-soy milk (plain, unsweetened almond is excellent) and allergen-free chocolate. Enjoy Life brand has some very tasty chocolate chips that are available at many mega-marts.
