Vegan Snicker Doodle Cookies

Sorry there's not a photo...we ate all of the cookies before I could take a picture.

I based the recipe on the Vegan Chia Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. It's an easy and tasty adaptation! 

Makes About 12 Cookies

Ingredients:
1 1/4 C. Flour (I've been subbing half of the flour with whole wheat and the cookies still taste great!)
1/3 C. Virgin Coconut Oil
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/2 C. Turbinado or Granulated Sugar, Divided
1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/3 C. Water
2 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
1 Tsp. Vanilla (Be sure to check the label to make sure it doesn't contain glycerin!)
1 Tsp. Cinnamon, Divided (The strength of the cinnamon may vary, so add to your taste.)

Preheat the oven to 375. Grind up the chia seeds in a coffee grinder, or (my favorite option of course!) in a Magic Bullet. Mix the chia seeds with the water and let stand for at least 5 minutes. When the chia seeds are combined with water they create an amazing gel that works great as an egg substitute. Combine 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon and 1/4 C. Sugar in a small bowl. Stir together until evenly mixed and set aside. With a mixer, beat together the virgin coconut oil, sugars, and baking soda until well combined. Add in the chia gel, vanilla, and 1/2 Tsp. of cinnamon and mix again until combined. Add in a pinch of salt and the flour and mix together on low until combined. Pinch off about 2 tbsp. of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the cinnamon-sugar mix and place on the cookie sheet. The cookies don't really spread out, so flatten the ball until it is about 1/2 " thick. Repeat until the cookie sheet is filled. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 8-10 minutes. Mmmmmm...
