flax & nut cookies low fat

Submitted by: KERMITFRAB

Introduction

i tweaked a recipe from the "eat clean" book by tasca reno, i changed the flour...and used lighter bake oil replacement for half the fat...these are chewy and light when you want a healthy sweet cookie.
(if you dont have sunsweet lighter bake you can use applesauce)
