  • 1/4 cup flax seed ground
  • 1/4 cup water hot
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup brewer's yeast
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups oats rolled or old fashioned
  • 1 cup M&Ms
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Add water to ground flax seed, and stir together until mixed. Set aside.
  • In an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  • Add flax seed mixture, flour, brewer's yeast, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Fold in oats and stir. Once the oats are well combined, add M&Ms and chocolate chips.
  • Place spoonfuls of dough onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes until the edges are starting to brown.
  • After removing the baking sheet from the oven, let the cookies rest for several minutes, and move to a wire rack to cool completely. 


It's fine to use only M&Ms or chocolate chips or a different ratio than 1:1 as long as there are about 2 cups of chocolate. 
I used a teaspoon size cookie scooper and the recipe yielded 48 cookies. If you make bigger cookies, the cooking time may be longer.
