Prep Time:




Dry Wet
  • 1/4 cup light maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon grape seed oil
  • 2 tablespoon apple sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated.
  3. Roll by scant tablespoons into balls. Place 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet.
  4. To flatten with a wavy impression, press down on each ball with your index and middle fingers slightly apart like a peace sign.
  5. Bake until bottoms are golden, about 12 to 14 minutes.
  6. Cool 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.


a combination of other flours can be used but I have not tested. Tapioca or sweet rice flour could replace the arrowroot powder, and brown rice or chickpea flour can replace the teff or buckwheat.
