These cookies are a perfect treat for the afternoon or after dinner. The ground flaxseed in the cookies are a good source of iron and fiber! They taste great frozen, too!

  1. These are YUM. I used my own homemade peanut butter, which also has flaxseed oil. I can’t get enough flax in my life!

      Hi Amanda,
      Thank you for letting us know! Emsley Willingham, a nutrition student from West Chester University created this recipe. I made them a while ago, and your comment reminded me how good – and healthy – these cookies are. I use stevia and the cookies come out just as good as with splenda.
