Happy Walnut Cookies

Are you looking for an extremely simple, quick and healthy cookie recipe to accompany your family over the holidays? This is it!! Like I have said before, I am not great in the kitchen, but these are do-able and SO delicious! They contain mostly walnuts, very little wheat flour and flax seeds which are excellent for your health and well-being.


Happy Walnut Cookie Recipe:

Heat oven to 350


2 1/2 cup rough chopped walnuts

2/3 cup whole wheat flour

1/3 cup ground flax-seed

1 t salt


1/2 cup plus 2 T maple syrup

2 t vanilla

(I also added a little peppermint candy cane simply because I was in the holiday spirit)

Bake for 12-15 minutes

This recipe was created by Dr. Neil Nedley for his many patients who told him their struggles with depression. The walnuts and flax-seed are high in omega-3, which research shows improves mental outlook.
