You’ve been out in the cold, braving not only the elements, but also the crazed shoppers who seem to come out in droves the closer it gets to Christmas. You’re frazzled, because as if shopping with them wasn’t bad enough, you just spent the last hour in traffic. (And crazy shoppers means even crazier drivers!) You get home, turn on some soothing music, and put water on to boil for tea. You’re famished and looking around for something to eat…then you remember that you made a batch of these cookies a couple days ago and stashed them away in the pantry!
If you guessed that the above scenario is by no means just hypothetical, you are right. :)
These cookies were a lifesaver for me a couple days ago. Not only are they the perfect treat, but they won’t leave you feeling overly full (with a sugar crash to come) the way normal cookies will. In addition to having great flavor, these Cranberry Flax Cookies are also pretty nutritious with whole wheat flour and flaxseed, plus they’re naturally sweetened with coconut palm sugar.
This recipe is day four of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats event!
