Well, I've done it! The following recipe has been tweaked for about a year in order to get all the ingredients I wanted in there, specifically incorporating soy, flax, wheat germ and oats while subtracting basic white flour down to the bare minimum that still works in a cookie. It was loosely based on my mom's wheat germ choc chip cookies she has made forever, yum!
Welcome to my new, relatively healthy (there's still butter & sugar in there) cookie recipe. I need a name, I'm thinking "Hippie Cookies" since there's a lot of good stuff in there, hubby loves them and he's from Oregon, and well - you know those Oregonians...... :)
If any of you decide to make these be forewarned that they have a definite nutty flax taste to them so if you don't like that you can omit it and replace with the same amount of wheat germ or oats. Most of the sweet tooth craving is gained by the dark chocolate chips. They stay chewy and freeze well also.
