Not only are these cookies good for kids who need to gain a little weight, but another quad mom said they are really good for moms who are breastfeeding, so this would be a great recipe for new moms. Also, these cookies would be good for people who work-out and are building muscle. I told my nephew, Gage, about them because he plays high school sports; he was very interested and wants to give them a try. The best part about these cookies is how easy they are to make. All you have to do is throw a few ingredients together, mix them up, and eat!
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup flax seed
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup natural honey
3 teaspoons coconut oil
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Roll into balls (you can leave them as balls or flatten them out). Place in the refrigerator to harden. Eat & enjoy! (And if you're a Seals kid, hopefully you'll gain some weight.) :)
You can add Brewers Yeast (great for breastfeeding moms and people who work out)
You can substitute Nutella for Peanut Butter
You can substitute quinoa for oatmeal
Recommendations for kids:
Kids ~ 7 yrs old & around 45lbs - 3 cookies a day
Kids ~ 3 yrs old & around 35lbs - 2 cookies a day
I give my quints who are ~20lbs 1 cookie a day.

I'm so thankful I'm a part of a community of moms who share ideas and information that help others out. And I want to do my part in paying it forward so I hope this recipe with be helpful to a few of you who read my blog. This is seriously the easiest recipe I think I've ever used and it honestly took me about 5 minutes to make the cookies.
