Oatmeal Cookies 2.0

I tried making a healthier version of the oatmeal cookies. I added flax seeds and bulgar wheat. I decided not to use butter as an experiment, and to use oil instead. The result is that I can't tell the difference and butter is overrated. I added dried cranberries (in addition to the raisins and chocolate chips). That turned out to be a bad idea. The dried cranberries are too tart for this cookie imho tbh. Also, I was told that the flax seeds were cooked too long and thus impenetrable OH HO HO HO. Anyhow, if I make these again, I won't add the dried cranberries, and I'll rethink this flax seed pickle.

What about using ground flax seed instead of whole flax seeds?
