Preheat the oven to 180°C/200°C/gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper.
Make your chia or flax egg. Put 1 tablespoon of ground chia or flax seeds in a small bowl and mix with 3 tablespoons of cold water. Set aside to thicken.
Place 100g wholemeal flour with 50g ground almonds, ½ teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon of mixed spice (or ground cinnamon) into a large mixing bowl. Add a pinch of sea salt if using. Whisk to combine.
Add your flax or chia egg to the flour mixture along with 60g maple syrup, 60g dried cranberries and 100g apple puree.
Spoon out cookie sized balls of the dough and flatten out on the tray using your hands leaving a little gap between each one.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until slightly risen and golden brown.
Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack (although they are very tasty still warm!)
