Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies (for Dad)

Oven: 375 F

1½ cups (2½ sticks) margarine

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

Beat well until fluffy.

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

Add and beat well.

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups oatmeal

3/4 cup flaxseed meal

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

I recommend a finely ground whole wheat flour, such as Bob’s Red Mill brand. Sift the flour, salt and soda together. Add and mix all.

Dark chocolate bar (3 oz)

1 cup walnuts

Chop chocolate and walnuts into ¼ inch bits. Mix in gently by hand. Lightly spray or grease the cookie sheets. Drop the batter by teaspoons. Don’t handle the dough too much, it makes the cookies tough. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Fred’s favorite cookies contain four superfoods: oatmeal, flaxseed, walnuts and dark chocolate!
