Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

These taste a lot better than they sound! (Someone told me the name was gross)
Plus they are "healthful", so I feel better about feeding them to myself and my kids. (wink, wink) I threw in some ground flaxseed as well, but I like to put flaxseed in everything.
Adapted recipe from Money Saving Mom.

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup shortening or butter (softened)
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour  (I've found I need the higher flour amount)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons ground flaxseed (optional)
2 cups oats (rolled or quick oats)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together first six ingredients. Add flour, baking soda, salt and oats. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into 1-1 1/2-inch balls. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes or until done. Makes approximately 40 cookies.
