1/3 cup (83 ml) of organic sunflower oil
2/3 cup (160 ml) of almond milk
1tsp. (5ml) of apple cider vinegar

1/4 cup(62.5ml) of dried organic cranberries
1/3 cup (83 ml) of organic sesame seeds
1/2 cup (125ml) of organic amaranth puffs

Instructions:

Preheat you oven to 375º.
In a small bowl, combine the grounded flax seed and the water and let it stand for 10 minutes until it get thick like eggs.
In a medium bowl, put together the sorghum flour, the oatmeal flour, the quinoa flour, the tapioca starch, the arrowroot starch, the coconut flour, the xanthan gum, the cocoa powder, the baking soda, the baking powder, the salt and the brown sugar.
In an another bowl, mix the bananas, the sunflower oil, the almond milk, the vinegar, the vanilla.
When it’s all well blended, add the flour mix, the walnuts, the cranberries and the amaranth puff.
On a cookie sheet, spread the dough evenly. Use your hands, it will be easier. Than to make sure it was the same thickness everywhere, about an inch (1″), I used a pie dough roller.
Put it in the oven for about 20 minutes.
When you remove it, let it cool for about 5 minutes before you cut. Place the piece on a wire rack to finish the cooling.
