    these were okay for me. I used all purpose flour, maybe that was the problem. Also added cinnamon and raisins.
    **update** the cookies tasted better the next day. I would give them 4 stars but cannot seem to change the star rating. Thanks for the recipe

    I just made these and they are AMAZING! I added alittle bit of choc chips to it and they gave it just enough sweetness. New fave in this house for sure!

    Delicious! I added a cup of dried cranberries, which was a nice addition. My only suggestion is I think cinnamon would perfect this recipe. I'm going to add a little next time.

    I made these for my husband today. I made them big and just tossed in some raisins because he asked so sweetly. He is not usually one to stuff himself on sweets but he has been sneaking these cookies all day. Great recipe and his old body needs that fiber. Thanks for the post.

    These were fabulous! I added chopped Craisins b/c I like them and also toasted the flaxseeds first...oh...and I accidently put in 1/8 tsp almond extract (a mistake I'll repeat). Sure made a LOT and it's a good thing. I used the black seeds...looked kinda crazy in a healthy sort of way. Everyone that tasted them loved them. Great flavor! Thanks for the recipe!

    I take flax seed oil suppliments, but these cookies sound like a much more enjoyable way to me to add flax to my diet! Thank you!
