buttermilk or 1 tablespoon vinegar + milk to fill to 1-½ cups, I used soy mlik
whole wheat flour

In a medium sized bowl, place whole flax seeds in 1-½ cups of curdled milk and set aside for about 2 hours at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 350 and line 2 cookie trays with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mix together flour, oats, ground flax seeds, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
To the milk and whole flax seed mixture add the oil, vanilla, eggs and brown sugar. Beat well to combine to a creamy consistency.
Add wet ingredients to the dry and fold together until just combined. Fold in seeds and chocolate chips.
Drop large - 2 tablespoon sized cookies - onto the parchment lined baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.
