My husband and I have to watch our cholesterol. It is VERY difficult finding any recipe with NO cholesterol, so I had to start experiamenting. This is the best cookie recipe I came up with, and everyone Loves them.I change it around by adding or omitting things like replacing the orange extract with vanilla, or, omitting the raisins etc. Whatever the mood (and pantry) allows. Just have fun in the kitchen as I do.

How to Make Cholesterol Free DELICIOUS Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Oven 350.
    Mix flax seed/water mixture with first six ingredients together thoroughly.
  2. Mix in raisins(don't worry about how wet they are, it is actually good for the mix), choc. chips and nuts, till just blended.
  3. Mix in, b.soda, oats, and flour, till well blended. I use a big wodden spoon. Using a soup spoon, scoop about two good tablespoons and press together. Flatten on parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Make cookie the size you want them, because they really won't change much while baking. I cook mine 7 min. and rotate cookie sheet, then bake about another 6-7 min., till lightly brown on edge. Don't overbake!
