Chocolate Chip Cranberry Flax Cookies

This must surely rate amongst the tastiest & healthiest cookies that I have baked recently. You can make different variations by mixing dry fruits or nuts of your choice. I have already tried cranberries, raisins, and a mix of raisins and almonds.... every time it came our perfectly and delicious and filling too…Like Miryam wrote on her blog these are cookies that don’t taste like healthy cookies :)…  you can even replace some of the flour with cocoa powder… haven’t tried that though… try these cookies I am sure you will love these healthy cookies!
