I was skeptical when I saw that this recipe had flaxseed, whole wheat flour AND oatmeal. It sounded too healthy. However, we tried it and it is delicious. After we ground the walnuts, we poured them into a large bowl. We ground the oatmeal and flax until it was fine (about five minutes), added the baking soda, salt and cinnamon to the processor and pulsed to combine. Poured it all into the large bowl and mixed it together with bittersweet chocolate chips and Craisins. Meanwhile, we creamed the butter (I just couldn't use oil in a cookie recipe, I'm sure it's delicious- but these are cookies) with the brown sugar until light and fluffy. Added in one egg at a time and mixed on medium speed for about 30 seconds (used two eggs). Added the peanut butter (we didn't have enough almond butter on hand) and vanilla to the mixer, and mixed on medium for about a minute. Slowly added the dry ingredients to the mixer (1/3 at a time) until it was all incorporated. The cookie dough looked a little wet, but I left it alone and baked one batch to test (baked for 9 minutes) - Delicious! Thank you for a healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe, that my three-year olds and husband devoured.
