Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe for healthy oatmeal cookies was originally submitted by Rose from Woodbridge, Ontario Canada.

It takes good old oatmeal cookies, which I absolutely love, and kicks up the nutrition with the addition of flax and by using whole wheat flour.

Rose says: Oatmeal cookies are a comfort food from our childhood, but we can take this already healthier cookie and make it more healthy. Check out my heart-healthy recipe!
