    jennifer in new jersey's Note:

    I came up with this recipe when I wanted my 17 month old daughter to start taking flax. They are simple tasting, chewy and fairly easy to make. I flatten them down twice during baking with a spatula; once after 5 minutes of baking and then about a minute before they come out of the oven. DO NOT USE FLAX OIL in this recipe or any baking recipe for that matter as it breaks down into a substance that is not safe for ingestion. Only use flax seeds for baking or flax meal. Prep time doesn't include chill time.

      I got twice as many cookies by using a 1-inch cookie scoop. This cuts the calorie count per cookie in half. I also rolled the dough balls in flax seed, boosting the nutritional content. Sure,they're not a low-calorie food (what cookie is?), but I'd rather have my kids snack on these than Oreos. They're sweet & crunchy, and good with milk.

      Jennifer, we loved the cookies. My husband thought they were ginger cookies! Next time I'll add some ginger and more nutmeg. Maybe also ice them! Hey, Rita, my cookies look pretier than yours! They are kinda pufffy, really pretty. :-) Thanks a lot for sharing, Jennifer.

      Oh WOW, these are good! No, not "good"... fantastic! I used half honey and half molasses (personal preference... I love molasses!) and regular salt, and didn't bother with flattening them during baking. Mine were a little smaller, so I ended up with about 40 cookies... ALL of which were greedily polished off by my fiance, our roommate and me within 24 hours! My fiance is already begging me to make these for the holidays. I will happily comply. :)
