Maple Walnut Cookies

Maple Walnut Cookies (a.k.a. Brain Food Cookies, Happy Cookies, Prozac Cookies) are high in Omega-3, due to both the walnuts and flaxseed. These cookies are indeed "brain food" as well as being very tasty!

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. In a small bowl add all the ingredients in the given order. Mix well.
  3. Drop spoonful of dough on a slightly oiled cookie sheet and flatten them with a fork.
  4. Bake for ten to fifteen minutes or until golden brown, checking often to prevent burning.
  5. Let cool before removing from the cookie sheet. Makes one dozen.

*Instead of carob chips, you may substitute vegan chocolate chips, chopped dates or dried cherries; however, the walnuts must stay, as they are one of the best vegetarian sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, necessary for optimum brain function.

Preparation time: 10 minutes.

Baking time: 15 minutes.

Yield: 12 cookies.

    These cookies are incredible! :) I found the recipe for these in the Depression: The Way Out book by Dr. Nedley.  Thank you for awesome cookies that even my carnivorous family loves.

    I have a food sensitivity to flax seeds, can I use chia seeds instead?

    I would love to try these cookies at our church, it would be a healthy desert for the congregation. Thanks so much, what a great ideal!
    Be Blessed…..

    I made these yesterday. They are tasty, however do not look like the photo at all. Very dense with no lift to them as in the photo. Followed the recipe, with exception of adding 1 tablespoon of water as we live above 4,000 ft in a dry climate.

    Very unlucky I don’t have the ingredients in my country.

    I leave the chips out and flatten them with a fork.  The fork needs to be dipped in water after a cookie or two.  Everyone loves them!  Also, I use gluten-free flour.

    How much do you grind the walnuts? Until gooey? Until like flour? Little pieces? Thank you!

    I use raisins instead of chips in my food processor with the walnuts.  A favorite for family and guests!  I flatten them with a fork and also use gluten-free flour.
