"I created this recipe with my daughter after a conversation with my sister, Meagan, about her idea of a perfect oatmeal cookie. This is a cookie you can feel good about giving your kids. They are very moist and fluffy and taste even better the days after being baked. These are very adaptable so feel free to substitute chocolate chips and a bit of lemon zest for the raisins or add some cranberries and sliced almonds for some added fun!"

"very yummy! I love recipes w flax. so good for you! the only thing I changed was switching the measurments so less butter, more applesauce and half sugar half agave nectar. thank you for sharing your recipe!"
"Yum, yum, yum! These are addicting and not so bad for you! Very moist. I did not have any flax seed meal, but they still turned out great. Thanks for such a great recipe!"
"Thank you delicious and now far less guilty of a treat. i used light margarine, plum sauce for the apple. whole rye for the whole wheat. I halved the brown sugar and subbed in sweet n low. the dough texture was a little dry, so they didnt' spread. the baked as shape dropped. i'm sure due to my not perfect measuring. great taste."
"Loved them-ate about 3 of them immediately! I put in 1 tablespoon of cinnamon-adore cinnamon. I did have flax seed so ground some up-wonderful addition. You got a winner here Motivated Mama! Made for Theirs, Yours, & Mine tag."
"These cookies are FANTASTIC!! They come out nice and moist, chewy and delicious! We didn't have flax meal when I got the craving for these cookies, so I substituted with low fat vanilla yogurt from TJ's. I, also, let my 3 year old shake in as much cinnamon as he wanted. So fun to make these with the kids! Thanks for a great recipe. I can't wait to make them again!!"
