These whole grain energy cookies are also dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free.

- Flatten slightly before baking.
- Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and set on the tops.
I have a Nespresso espresso maker, but you can use 1/4 cup strong coffee if you’d like. If you don’t want any caffeine, use decaf or just use water.
I use a cookie dough scoop for all my cookie recipes, and really recommend getting one. It makes this go so much faster.
I get my chia seeds and flax seeds from Gerbs. I just order from Amazon. A 2 pound bag will last you a while in the freezer!
