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.

2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup ground flax-seed

1/2 cup plus 2 T maple syrup

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.
