    I took my basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and packed it with superfoods such as walnuts, flaxseeds, cocoa nibs, chia seeds and coconut oil. These cookies are an easy way to treat your kids (or yourself) and it's nice to know they provide a little bit of extra nutrition!

    These were so easy to make and turned out really well. I halved the amount of sugar and they were still sweet enough for me. Would definitely make again!  -  16 Feb 2017

    A friend of mine made these and we had them at her house. They were so delicious I had to make them myself. I used all coconut sugar and pecans instead of walnuts. I must admit I am a cookie dough lover more than a cookie lover and this dough is amazing! The Chia seeds and cacao nibs give a little crunch that is soooo good! These are just as good baked, too. I love that we get a little more nutrition while getting our cookie fix . I will definitely be making these again!  -  18 May 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    LOVE the combo of nuts, semi-sweet chocolate and chia seeds! I didn't have all the ingredients, and used only half the amount of sugar (in brown sugar), but found them still too sweet for our tastes... next time I would try adding applesauce in place of some of the sugar and oil. Also I just used baking powder in place of the baking soda and tartar, and they fluffed up great!  -  24 Mar 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
