Finely grind 1 tablespoon of golden flax seeds in a spice grinder. Place in a small bowl and stir in 3 tablespoons of water. Allow to sit for 30 minutes before using. The mixture will have thickened slightly and feel like a loose jelly. Just before incorporating into the recipe, stir in a good pinch of baking powder.
Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix together with a fork until it resembles soft pastry. If it is too damp, add some more almond meal/flour. If it has become too dry, add a drop of water at a time.
Press the pastry circles into each case and place on a baking tray. Bake in the cases at 180C/350F for 10 minutes, then remove from the pastry from each case and bake for 2 minutes on the baking tray to brown slightly.
