These cookies are as healthy as it gets when it comes to chocolate chip. The oatmeal and whole
wheat flour add vital nutrients and fiber. The whole flaxseeds provide healthy fats, fiber, and anti-
oxidants. Reducing the butter and sugar minimizes calories and saturated fats, but the apple sauce
adds moisture and healthy sweetness so you will not even miss the eliminated sugar and butter.
