Very nice texture, chewy, not too sweet!! Full of fiber, Omega 3's, lignans, and potassium. Very yummy and so very good for you. My daughter loves these. These are very good made with natural sugar as well ( I use natural sugar for my daughter). 1/2 to 1 cup, depending on how sweet you like it.
- 1⁄2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups flax seed meal
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon clove
- 3 medium bananas, ripe and mashed
- 2 cups rolled oats (pulsed in processor or quick oats)
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Mix in flax meal.
- Beat in eggs and vanilla.
- Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in bananas, and oats ( I like to process thick oats in the food processor for just a minute, it makes a nicer texture). I prefer not to use quick cooking oats.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
I have made your recipe several times, once with bananas and the other times with applesauce. Everyone seems to prefer the applesauce. Other wise I followed your recipe almost to a tee, substituting regular Splenda for the brown sugar blend. It is a very good healthy recipe and I thank you for submitting it.
I used sugar, as i do not like substitutions for it, and the cookies came out great tasting. Thnaks for the recipe:)
