  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the flaxseed and water and set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars on medium speed for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. With the mixer on medium-low, add in the flaxseed mixture.

  9. Bake for 13 minutes, use a round cookie cutter or glass to cookie scoot. Bake for an additional 4 minutes until cookies are firm around the edges.
  10. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!


  • Leftover cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week but are best when enjoyed within the first few days.
  • Cookie dough can be made ahead, scooped and placed in a ziploc bag to be frozen for up to two months. Once you’re ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes and bake. You’ll need to add on an extra 5 minutes or so to the original baking time.
