What to do when the child is home sick - bake, of course! Here's another version of a healthy choc chip cookie. This one uses a flaxseed egg.

Makes 16-20 cookies
1 tbsp flaxseed
3 tbsp water
2 c ground almonds
1/2 c brown rice flour (or another gluten free flour or almond flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 c maple syrup (or rice syrup or honey)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 c melted coconut oil
3/4 c dark chocolate chips or chunks

Preheat oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Mix flaxseed and water in a cup and set aside.
Mix flours, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Combine the sweetener, vanilla and flax 'egg' in another bowl. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine. Then mix in the melted coconut oil and chocolate chips.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and flatten slightly on the baking tray. You can place them close together as they do not spread.
Bake for 12-14 minutes. Leave on the tray to cool for a few minutes, the melted chocolate is super hot! Then transfer to a wire rack to harden up and cool completely.
