Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type B (4 beneficials)

  • Dessert

  • 1/2 Cup Butter

  • 1 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 1 Tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup Brown Rice Flour
  • 1 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Finely Ground Flax
  • 1 and 1/2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • Optional: Add Dried Cranberries, Walnuts (or dried fruit/nuts compatible with your type).

How to make it:
  1. Soften butter in a bowl.
  2. Mash then use a mixer to mix with maple syrup until blended.
  3. Add eggs, vanilla, nutmeg.
  4. Separately blend all dry ingredients, except rolled oats.
  5. Add blended dry ingredients to blended wet ingredients and mix together.
  6. Add rolled oats, dried fruit and nuts and mix.
  7. Drop cookie mixture in plump spoonfuls on non-stick cookie sheet. Cookies do not spread out much so you can space them closely.
