I found this recipe when looking for Superfoods for my New Years resolution - my mom passed an article on to me and it had a recipe for "America's Healthiest Cookie". Yum! (I added the flaxseed)

yelds: About 2 dozen cookies

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal (optional)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove
from heat, and add brown sugar; stir until smooth.
2. Combine all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, flaxseed, baking soda, oats, and
salt in a medium bowl. 
3. Combine butter mixture with the dry ingredients, and add egg and vanilla extract.
4. Fold in walnuts and bittersweet chocolate.
5. Mix well, and spoon by tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets.
6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until tops are dry to the touch.
