  1. These cookies look delicious and made crave for it. I loved it already since it is healthy, thank you for the recipe.

  2. Sarah says:

    I want to make these nut free so my daughter can take them to school. Any suggestions on how to replace those ingredients? I was thinking sunflower seeds and maybe more oats? Normally I just leave the nuts out but 3 cups is a lot to omit!

    • Ruthie says:

      Hi Sarah… sunflower seeds is a great substitute and maybe some additional dried fruit. I would maybe do one cup of additional oats and then bake a test batch to see, I think it should bake up just fine though. She’ll love these cookies! Let me know how it goes 🙂 xoxo~ Ruthie

  3. lynn says:

    I have a couple of questions. First a comment, these look amazing! I’d like to know what are the calories per cookie. And can you half the recipe? I am on a no fat diet, for I have to be extremely careful of fats but need good fat in my diet. I do believe this one would be very good for me with the flax with only eating a cookie a day. So do they freeze well? I love your site, and will continue to enjoy all your recipes.

    • Ruthie says:

      These cookies are fabulous and packed with good for you ingredients! They freeze wonderfully in a ziplock gallon freezer back. I always have some on hand that way for a quick treat 🙂 You could easily cut the recipe in half as it makes approx 70 cookies… which is a ton. I’m going to add the nutrition info into the post so it’s handy for anyone interested. Thank you for the nice comment and I hope enjoy these delicious cookies. xoxo~ Ruthie

  5. Lori says:

    The recipe does not say when to incorporate the flax seed, I am assuming with the flour? I did make them and they are yummy!

    • Ruthie says:

      Yes, the flax goes in with the flour… I’ll fix that. I’m so glad you enjoyed them! They are a fave around our house for sure 🙂 xoxo~ Ruthie

      • Rita Welch says:

        I think there is an error. The ingredients say baking soda and the instructions said baking powder. Which is correct?

      • Ruthie says:

        Hi Rita… it is baking soda. I should be listed right, at least it looks correct on my end. You’ll love these little cookies- they’re wonderful! xoxo~ Ruthie
