Flax Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by JMigs0

A recipe I found on www.Hy-Vee.com I wanted to make oatmeal cookies with flax meal. You can grind your own flax meal or find it already grounded (such as Bob's Red Mill brand). I use a cookie-dough scooper (like an ice-cream scooper but alot smaller) instead of rolling the dough into 1" balls, alot faster and easier.

I am not a great baker, but these cookies turned out great both crispy and chewy. They should be a Christmas hit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *Either use purchased milled flaxseed (flax meal), or grind whole flaxseed in a coffee grinder to a granular, free-flowing meal. You can purchase this at healthfood stores or healthfood sections at some grocery stores.
  2. Cream margarine (or butter), white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oats, milled flaxseed, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir into creamed mixture.
  5. Add nuts and chocolate chips, mix until blended.
  6. Form dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 - 12 minutes.
