Oatmeal, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Okay no cookie is perfectly healthy, right?  Well these are pretty close.  Protein-packed with some added fiber.  You can’t go wrong!


1 c of peanut butter (I used organic crunchy)
1 c of light brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 c of whole wheat flour
1/2 old fashioned oats
1 tsp of baking soda
2 tsp of golden flax seed meal
1/3 c of dark chocolate chips


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In your stand mixer, combine the peanut butter (or whatever nut butter you wish to use) and brown sugar.  Mix well for about 2 minutes or so. Then add the eggs, one at a time.  Once blended, add the flour, oats, baking soda,  and flax seed meal.  Avoid over mixing.  Then add the chocolate chips and blend by hand.

With a mini scoop, drop the dough balls onto your cookie sheet leaving enough room in between for the cookies to spread out.  Bake for 14 minutes or so or until golden brown.  I started checking them around the 12 minute mark.
