  • 1 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill paleo baking flour
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest (about 1 medium lemon)
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 medium lemon)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, add our Bob’s Red Mill paleo baking flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, chia seeds, coconut oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup.  Stir together until fully incorporated.

  3. Now, scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the batter and transfer to the cookie sheet.
  4. Shape the dough into a round cookie, using water to help keep it from sticking to your hands, as needed.
  5. Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving space in between the cookies on the baking sheet.
  6. Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just slightly start to turn brown.
  7. Remove from the oven and let sit for a couple minutes to set before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
