Description

You can make cookies only so healthy, but not totally healthy. Because once you reach a point on ingredient exchanges, things just get weird.

It’s like trying to eat bananas when you are really craving chocolate. Pretty soon you just end up eating the chocolate.

So let’s just agree to make a few healthful additions to increase the fiber and omega-3 content and then just eat the cookies. In moderation.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick Butter, Softened To Room Temperature
  • ¼ cups Light Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups White Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 whole Large Egg
  • ½ cups Walnuts, Finely Ground
  • ¾ cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 2-½ Tablespoons Flax Meal
  • 5 ounces, weight Mini Dark Chocolate Chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer. Add in vanilla and egg and combine.

In a smaller bowl, combine walnuts, flour, baking soda and flax meal. Add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix. Fold in chocolate chips.

Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter in round mounds onto the parchment paper-lined sheets, leaving 2″ in between each mound.

Bake for 7-9 minutes, then remove from oven and put the pans on a rack. Allow cookies to sit in the pans for 2-3 minutes prior to transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Store in an airtight container.
