Flax Breakfast Cookies get a Double Chocolate Boost
When I did a re-shoot of my popular 100% flax breakfast cookies last week, I realized I had made a terrible mistake.
I never created a chocolate version.

How to Make Chocolate Flax Breakfast Cookies
The cookies are super-simple to make, too. Yay!
Begin by making the sticky portion of the recipe. Place 1/2 cup of the (smooth) nut or seed butter of your choice in a medium bowl along with 1/3 cup coconut sugar (use a keto-friendly sugar substitute for keto version), and 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.
Next, Add 6 tablespoons of BOILING water. This will help soften the nut butter and blend the ingredients into a glossy, harmonious, fudgy base. You may want to stop right here, as this mixture is heavenly.
Next up, stir in 2/3 cup of flaxseed meal until completley blended. The mixture will be thick, but if it is too stiff to stir, add a few more teaspoons of water, just until stir-able.
Now you have a choice: stir 2 tablespoons of miniature chocolate chips directly into the dough, leave them out, or wait to sprinkle on top of the cookies.
Once your choice is made, divide the batter between 12 greased or sprayed muffin cups. If you chose option #3, sprinkle the cookie tops with the chips. Bake in a 325F oven for 17 to 19 minutes until the surface of the cookies appears dry and the centers feel just fir to the touch.
Behold the chocolate goodness:
With super-crispy edge, fudgy middles, and intense chocolate flavor throughout, these are 100% delectable on top of being 100% flax.
These make a healthy breakfast on the go, but are definitely dessert-worthy, too.
