Hazelnut flour offers a rich, moist, nutritious, and totally grain-free (paleo) alternative to regular gluten-free flour blends that often contain rice flours. Hazelnut flour is made from ground hazelnuts, which are high-fat, high-calorie tree nuts that offer up many nutritional benefits including high levels of important polyphenols and antioxidants.
Don't omit the ground flaxseeds! The cookies are very moist due to the high fat content of the hazelnut flour. I had to experiment a lot to get these just right. The flax will aid in soaking up the excess moisture and is essential to holding the cookies together.
