  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper and then set them aside.

While the mixer is on low-medium speed, add in the flax mixture. Stop to scrape the sides and then contineu to mix until combined. Add in the peanut butter and vanilla and mix until well combined.
