Featured Ingredient
Simply Omega-3 The stabilized ground flaxseed in Simply Omega-3 is one of those gifts from nature that is loaded with fiber, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Add that it's low in carbohydrates and it’s stabilized (no worries of nutrition loss or rancidity for one
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon flax and 1/4 cup water. Let sit while preparing remaining ingredients.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mix flour, oats, 1/3 cup stabilized ground flaxseed (Mega Omega® or Simply Omega-3™), baking soda and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, beat butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, syrup, flax mixture and vanilla with an electric mixer until well-blended and fluffy.
  5. Stir dry ingredients into peanut butter mixture in two additions. Stir in chocolate. Cover and refrigerate, if necessary, until dough is no longer sticky. (30 minutes)
  6. Grease two baking sheets. Roll a heaping tablespoonful of dough into a 1 1/2 inch ball and place on baking sheet. Flatten cookies slightly with a fork.
  7. Bake until puffed but still soft, about 8 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for five minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool.
