2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
 1 cup chocolate chips
2 -4 tablespoons brewer's yeast  (no substitutions, do not omit or use any other type of yeast.)

Preheat oven to 350°.
Mix the flaxseed meal and water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
 Beat butter,  sugar, and brown sugar well.
 Add banana and eggs and mix well.
Add flaxseed mix and vanilla, beat well.
 Sift together flour, brewers yeast, baking soda, and salt.
 Add dry ingredients to butter mix.
 Stir in oats and chips.
Scoop onto baking sheet.   Bake for 12 minutes.
