Anyone who knows me will vouch for the fact that cookies are not my culinary strong point. These cookies turned out well for me so I would like to share them, figuratively-speaking. I like that this recipe has a lot of heart-healthy ingredients also.

- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 1⁄2 cups rolled oats

- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup wheat germ
- 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds

- In a separate bowl, mix the rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Stir into the butter mixture along with the hazelnuts, wheat germ, sunflower seeds and flax seed and mix until blended.
