Notes | FAQ

- Adjust the quantity of instant coffee powder based on its strength and based on your taste preference.
- Flax seed meal + water is a substitute for egg. If not a vegan / vegetarian, feel free to replace it with a large egg.
- Adjust the size of the dough balls based on the size of cookie you desire.
- Baking time would depend on your oven settings and the size of cookie.
- Leave atleast 1-2 inches space between the cookie dough while baking to make sure that they do not stick to each other after baking.
- Immediately after pulling the cookies from the oven, they will be very soft and feel like they are under cooked. It is mandatory to let them cool :-)
