“I came up with this recipe when I wanted my 17 month old daughter to start taking flax. They are simple tasting, chewy and fairly easy to make. I flatten them down twice during baking with a spatula; once after 5 minutes of baking and then about a minute before they come out of the oven. DO NOT USE FLAX OIL in this recipe or any baking recipe for that matter as it breaks down into a substance that is not safe for ingestion. Only use flax seeds for baking or flax meal. Prep time doesn't include chill time.”
