Recipe: Oatmeal-Flax Choc Chip Cookies with Pine Nuts

Mmmm.. cookies for breakfast!  Why not?  These lovelies are filled with goodness from oatmeal, ground flax, dark chocolate and pine nuts.  I'm sure they must be better than some sugar-filled cereal, eh?

These cookies are chewy with subtle crunch from the chocolate chips and nuts.  I've spiced them with Saigon Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice for extra kick.  They're very filling and perfect for a quick bite before you get your day started.

from the kitchen of Mum In Bloom

2 eggs
1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbsp. ground flax

1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. hot water

2 cups rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. Saigon Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. allspice
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 package dark chocolate chips

Beat eggs in mixing bowl until frothy.  Beat in both sugars.  Add cooking oil, vanilla and flax.

Dissolve baking soda in hot water.  Stir into egg mixture.

Add oats, flours, salt, spices and still well.  Gently mix in pine nuts and chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls (not too big) onto greased baking sheet (I use my Silpat).  Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes prior to transferring them to a cooling rack.  Cool completely, store in an airtight container.

  1. Sarah,

    I love the idea of a healthy cookie for breakfast! These look perfect! How have you been? Hopefully you had a wonderful weekend!

  2. Sure, why not cookies for breakfast. We already eat cake, too. Your cookies sound a lot healthier. Love the Saigon cinnamon you are using.

  3. I cannot wait to try these. I need more flax in my diet for high cholesterol. I think my girls would love these for breakfast as they walk out the door on the way to school....
