Add flour, baking soda, spice mix and salt to a big bowl and mix together
In a separate bowl, mix maple syrup, coconut oil and flax egg together
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl and combine well using a spoon to start. Then combine together using your hands into a dough ball
Wrap in cling wrap and place into the fridge for 40 - 60 minutes
Once time is up, preheat oven to 220C°/425°F
Place dough ball inbetween two sheets of baking/parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll dough into a large flat level piece.
Place floured cookie cutter onto the dough and press down well to create shapes. You can also use a glass to make round cookies.
Gently remove pieces and place down on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place into the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes until browned (for softer biscuits remove at 10 minutes, as the longer they cook for the crispier they will be)
Let them rest on a cooling rack before decorating.
Optional, decorate with a light dusting of icing sugar or mix 1-2 tablespoon of Icing sugar with a small dash of water and mix to a thick consistency. Add to a zip lock bag and cut a tiny hole to use as a piping bag to decorate.
