Sometimes, as much as we love cookies, it's important to balance sweets with nutritious foods. Luckily, these cookies are a little bit of both.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Krusteaz Brown Sugar & Oatmeal Cookie Mix
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 Cup coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 Cup chopped raw almonds
  • 1/2 Cup dark chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone liners; set aside.

In a large bowl, stir together cookie mix, peanut butter, coconut oil, egg and ground flaxseed together until a soft dough forms.

Fold in the chopped almonds and dark chocolate chips.

Scoop dough by rounded tablespoons and place 1inch apart on the baking sheets.

Bake 8-10 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even cooking.

Remove from oven.

While still warm, use the bottom of a glass to gently press down on each cookie to flatten them.

Serve warm, or cool to room temperature, and store airtight.
