Oatmeal Craisin Cookies with Flaxseeds

Like chocolate chip cookies, a good oatmeal cookie recipe is one of those classic recipes that everyone needs in their recipe arsenal.  These oatmeal cookies are chewy and delicious, and are healthier than your average cookie. These cookies are made with a mix of all purpose flour and almond flour.  Almond flour is low in carbs and rich in other nutrients such as protein, magnesium as well as added fiber.  Like almond flour, flaxseeds also contain fiber as well as protein.  They are also high in omega 3 fatty acids. 

These oatmeal cookies are buttery and delicious. Often times people pick up a oatmeal cookie and are disappointed because they are dry and hard, not these. This oatmeal cookie recipe won’t disappoint. 

I decided to make these cookies with quick oats because that was what I had on hand.  I’m not sure if rolled oats could be substituted in this recipe for the exact amount of the quick oats. Contrary to what I read the quick oats were great in the recipe.
