Oatmeal Flax Seed Cookies

Submitted by: RENEEASHTONE

Introduction

This is a slighly healthier version of the classic oatmeal cookie. I do not care for raisins as in traditional oatmeal cookies. This recipe will work the same adding 1 cup of raisins.

    Made these tonight, with a few changes:
    1. Used 1 cup of honey almond granola instead of 2 cups of rolled oats.
    2. Used 2 Parkay marg.sticks (1 cup) instead of buttery spread.
    3. Tried to chop/grind flax seeds with my Sunbeam Oskar Jr. - didn't cut a single seed.
    42 cookies; baked 8 min; YUMMY! - 8/28/09

  • Made using half the amount of brown sugar and replaced that half with stevia. Added 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips. These came out great! - 12/6/11

  • Sounds tasty. I have heard that flax seeds must be milled/ground in order for maximum benefit. Have you heard this??? - 10/19/08

  • These cookies were excellent! However, I didn't get to make 42 (maybe because I used butter and raisins!), so I adjusted the calories (116). I will definitely make these again, a great morning snack that keeps you full long! - 7/1/08
