  • 2 tablespoons flax meal
  • 6 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 ¼ cups almond meal
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 5 dates pitted
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons poppyseeds


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with either parchment paper  or silicone baking mats. 
  • Combine warm water and and flax meal in your food processor. Pulse once to mix and allow 5 minutes for the mixture to “gel”. 
  • Add the dates to the food processor. Blend for 30-60 seconds or until the dates are well chopped (your food processor may shake a bit at first but should stop after a second or two).
  • After the 5 minutes, add the remaining ingredients to the food processor. Blend until the batter is smooth (you may have to scrape down the sides a few times).
  • Using a small cookie scoop or a rounded tablespoon, scoop batter onto the lined baking sheets. Using wet hands, gently flatten the cookie mounds. Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
  • Enjoy warm, store in fridge up to a week, or freeze.


  • These breakfast cookies are gluten free, grain free, vegan, and refined sugar free.
  • They are mixed entirely in your food processor (high five for fewer dishes!) and are done start to finish in about 30 minutes.
