Flapjacky -Tray bake biscuit things

 These are meant to be cookies, but they spread to fill the whole tray.  Also, with the addition of flax for texture they end up looking more like flapjacks, but they are still good!

1 cup milled flax seeds (or replace with GF flour)
1 and a half cups plain GF flour (Tesco sells this)
1 cup of margarine
2 cups of sugar
1 heaped teaspoon GF baking powder
1 heaped teaspoon xanthum gum powder (Tesco sells this)
a little hot water

Mix all the dry ingredients and rub in the margarine.  Add approx 2 tbspns hot water and mix to make a soft sticky dough.  Add GF choc chips/nuts.

Spread onto a bakingsheet lined tray and bake for 20-30 mins at 170c (until golden brown).

Leave to cool for 10 mins before cutting and removing from sheet.
