Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have you ever found a recipe that is solo easy it's crazy?  Then you tweaked just a little bit that you feel better about drowning it in chocolate chips?

This Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies is one of those for me.  I found it years ago on the back of a Oatmeal Package and then cut back on the sugar and added 1/2 cup of ground flaxseed for the extra healthy benefits.

This is a great after school snack.  Apparently this cookie is really good dunked in chocolate milk too.






* This recipe was found on back of Robin Hood Minute Oats bag but I adapted it by adding ground Flax seed and less sugar.
