  1. In a small bowl or cup, combine the ground flax seed and the water. Let sit for 5 minutes until it forms a gel.
  2. Combine the cocoa powder, spelt flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl, set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix the sugar and canola oil until combined, then add the flax egg and non-dairy milk.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until everything is wet.
  5. Add the chocolate chips, stir.
  6. Refrigerate the dough for one hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Put the coconut flakes in a small bowl.
  8. Take a small spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it in the coconut to coat - you want a lot of coconut to stick to each ball.
  9. Put the coconut covered balls on the parchment lined cookie sheets.
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
