  3. Stir in 1 cup self-rising flour, whole wheat flour, oats and flaxseed meal. If sticky, add an additional ½ cup self-rising flour. Fold in fruits and nuts.
  4. Scoop onto cookie sheets, 12 per sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until light tan.

Tips & Notes

In addition to butter, this recipe calls for margarine, because hydrogenated fat (vegetable oil) enhances the texture in a way that butter cannot and creates a lighter cookie. If you do not wish to use margarine, there are many alternatives – just look for oil-based spreads in the dairy or dairy alternatives department of your grocery store.
