Loaded oatmeal cookies: a recipe

Loaded oatmeal cookies
We've been talking CSA veg so much lately that I figured it was time for some cookies.

I love cookies like these, that somehow manage to imply that they are healthful because they are "loaded" with good things like flaxseed, wheat germ and fruit -- apparently we should just ignore that they also include two kinds of sugar and chocolate. Heck, some people who have made the recipe have even gone so far as to refer to them as "breakfast cookies." Really?

Not that there's anything wrong with cookies for breakfast, of course.

Regardless, I think they are just plain wicked. In fact, Mr. Ninj, cramming in his fifth or sixth last night, proclaimed them to be in a tie with the salty oaties for best cookie ever. (Gee, funny how the dandelion cookies didn't even make it out of the starting blocks for him...)

Wow. Them's fightin' words.

I think you should make both this weekend and let me know which one wins in your house.
