  1. In a large bowl, whisk together oat flour, sea salt, baking powder, and baking soda. 
  2. Add in cubes of butter and cut butter together with flour. There should still be small clumps of butter visible. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together maple syrup, almond/coconut milk mixture, egg, and vanilla extract together.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredient and fold together until it’s a coherent batter.
  5. Add in chocolate chips and fold in until well combined.
  6. Let dough rest for 15 minutes. While resting, preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Lightly dust a clean surface with oat flour and knead dough lightly on surface. It may be sticky, so add a dusting of more oat flour at a time.
  8. Once kneaded for a few minutes, shape into a circle and cut into 8 triangles.
  9. Place onto the baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar if desired.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven and let cool. 


*replacing vegan butter: I have not used coconut oil, but I have tested it with a vegan butter and it works great!

*for egg free: replace 1 egg with 1 tbsp ground flaxseed mixed with 2 tbsp water. Let sit for 5 minutes to coagulate.
