Chewy Peanut Butter, Flax Seed and Chocolate Chip Cookies

     This recipe makes some tasty chewy cookies! And no flour is needed to make them! I used my small coffee grinder to grind the flax seeds and in my opinion, you don't even taste them in the cookies (but they add protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids). The apple sauce helps add moisture that the flax seeds take out.

1 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup applesauce
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup ground flax seed
1/2- 3/4 cup chocolate chips

   Put all ingredients except chocolate chips in mixer. Mix for 1-2 minutes until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Put dough in fridge for about 30 minutes before forming balls and putting on cookie sheet. Makes about 15-20 cookies depending on how big you make them. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes. I recommend checking them at 8 minutes just in case because of oven/cookie sheet variances.
