*You can use any flour- whole wheat, all purpose, flaxseed meal, coconut...
*You can use any form of nut butter, or try Nutella for a more chocolately cookie that is perfect with your morning coffee.
*You can use dark chocolate chips, peanut butter chocolate chips, whatever you want, or substitute for cranberries
* You can use any kind of nuts. I've added almond slivers, walnuts, or left nuts out completely
*optional or sub for rolled oats for a heartier cookie.
*An ice cream scoop works best
*You want the cookies to be slightly browned. It is better to undercook then overcook these kind of cookies.
