Take flaxseed or linseed for example – they are high in Omega 3 and fiber. Some researchers have suggested that these are great to fight breast or prostate cancers. Flaxseed is also high in vitamin B1, B6 and Magnesium. Pumpkin seeds are another good source of protein, iron, zinc and magnesium, manganese and potassium.

The basis of the cookies is brown flour and oats, which help to feel fuller for longer. Great little kids lunch treat, specially as they are nut free and full of goodness.
