GF / Vegan chocolate chip cookies

1/2 cup vegan butter (I used earth balance)
1/2 cup unfiltered cane sugar (or raw sugar, although I might have used less if it was raw sugar)
1 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 3 tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract

mix mix mix

1 1/2 cup oatmeal + 3/4 cup walnuts ground together in food processor or blender (should look like chunky flour)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

mix mix mix

let sit for 15-20 minutes so the oat/nut flour can soak up the liquid (should look drier after the wait)

1/2-3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips (ghirardelli brand, or soy chocolate chips)

mix mix mix

note: if your batter still looks too wet to be cookies, add a tbsp at a time of gf flour (or reg flour, but then they won't be gf) until it looks like normal cookie dough (I had to add a tbsp).

scoop out onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes.

eat. and enjoy. note: cookies will firm up after cooling, so it's okay if they don't quite look done yet when you pull them out of the oven.

thanks jessica giffen for the mix mix mix inspiration.
