Years ago, there was a flax meal cookie recipe in an issue of La Leche’s League’s New Beginnings magazine. I remember thinking it was a great idea to boost the nutritional value with the addition of ground flaxseed.

Well, I went digging around the internet to find a recipe like it and have tweaked it a little to make it my own. I made a double batch using my Bosch mixer to have during standardized testing week earlier this month.
Everyone that we shared a cookie with at testing gave them a thumbs up. The texture and taste is different than most cookie recipes, but it’s still a great way to get that sweet tooth fix with a little more nutritional value involved.

When it comes to making cookies, life gets a LOT easier when you have a mixer. Unless you like to give your hands and arms a serious workout.
You could make these with a hand held or stand mixer. My personal preference is to use my Bosch with the heavy duty cookie paddles. If you decide to go for a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, get the professional grade for longevity.

A good quality chocolate chip is a must. I am all in favor of dark chocolate, especially if the chips are 65 to 85% cacao. Loads of health benefits then!!
