  1. In a small bowl mix the flaxseed and almond milk together. Put the mixture in the refrigerator for 20′ to thicken. This is a great egg substitute for baking!
  2. Dice and soak the cranberries in water.
  3. Mix the oat flour, whole wheat flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
  4. Pour the flaxseed-almond milk mixture into the large bowl. Add the soaked cranberries with any water left. Put the brown sugar, salt and olive oil into the bowl. Combine and knead for a few minutes until the dough is firm. As far as the biscuit dough texture is concerned, it is oily and crumbly. Place plastic wrap over the bowl, put the dough in the refrigerator for 20′ to rest before shaping.
  5. Preheat the oven to 170°C (338°F).
  6. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Roll out the dough between 2 parchment sheets; the dough should be approximately 1/4-inch thick (5-7 mm). Lift off the top sheet and cut the biscuits using a round biscuit cutter. Pull away the excess dough around the biscuits and place them on the baking sheets.
  8. Do not discard the excess dough, knead the dough pieces to combine them, roll out the dough and cut biscuits.
  9. Bake the biscuits for 13′-15′.
  10. Remove the sheets from the oven; allow the biscuits to cool on the sheets.
  11. Store the biscuits in an airtight container. The biscuits will keep for up to 2 weeks.
