These oatmeal dark chocolate cookies are healthy and delicious, made from all whole grains and with the addition of flax seed for an extra fatty acid nutrition boost. They are not overly sweet, but the dark chocolate adds a lovely decadence to them. Enjoy!

- 1/2 C dark chocolate chips (or raisins, cranberries, etc.)
