Beautiful Linseed Cinnamon Cookies– the linseeds(or the flaxseeds) give these soft cookies a nice texture, while the cinnamon brings a subtle flavor.
If you never tried a linseed cookie before, you are here for a treat.
Linseed or flaxseed cookies are something I never tasted before. Recently, I got this beautiful book, written by Paulina Abascal, a popular pastry chef from Mexico.
The recipes in this book are easy to make and the pictures are beautiful and inspiring.
Here is where I found the recipe and wanted to try it really bad.
Linseeds (or flax seeds) are very high in Omega 3, protein and fiber. Many cultures use flax seeds in their diets because of their health benefits.
In this recipe, the flax seeds are incorporated beautifully with the ingredients, adding texture and crunchiness to the soft cookies.
Also, it is such a great way to sneak in some flax seeds into your diet!
Flax seeds can be an acquired taste if you never had them before. Some people aren’t too excited about the flavor, but I personally love it. I think it adds a really nice depth and richness to foods.
You might think that these are regular cookies with some flax seeds in them, but the recipe requires 2 cups of them.
Also, the cinnamon adds a nice touch to them and the brown sugar gives them a beautiful color. Such a win-win combination!
The cookies are not very sweet which makes them a good snack or even a good breakfast.
You can feel good about having a cookie with your morning coffee. Or tea, if that is what makes you happy in the morning.
