Oatmeal Cowboy Cookies Updated 2015 Less Sugar & More Fiber

 

(“This is a soft cookie recipe.  My children dislike whole oats in their cookies, so I make the oats into oat flour in my food processor and add whole flax seeds which also have to be ground in the food processor.  My cholesterol is up and flax and oatmeal are natural ingredients to help lower it.  My children also have a textural issue with the whole oats and I was told by a nutritionist that our bodies can’t process and get the nutrients from whole flax seeds, so you should ground them before eating them. In my house the children don’t even realize there are oats and flax in this recipe.”   We all love these cookies and the name reminds us of the TV show “Needs Declassified”on Nickelodeon and the actor who plays “Cookie.”
