Made Them and Inhaled Them

Recipe courtesy of The Nourish Network

Thin and Chewy Oatmeal-Flax Cookies

Ok, so mine did not come out thin and I did not have flax but they were still good.
I would definitely make them again. I was surprised that the whole wheat flour did not spoil the deliciousness. I used organic chocolate chips for good measure.

3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
4 ounces butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips, or semisweet

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together flour, flax, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

With an electric mixer, beat together butter and brown sugar for one minute, until the mixture is smooth. Add the egg and vanilla; scrape down sides, and continue to blend until incorporated. Add flour mixture a little at a time until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Spray three large cookie sheets with cooking spray and mound 12 rounded tablespoonfuls of batter on each sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, swapping sheets half way through, until golden. Let cool slightly, for 5 minutes, and slide cookies onto a cooling rack.

Hi Rachel,

I'm so glad you liked the cookies! They are one of the few things I'm addicted to.

Cheers!
