Choconut Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I just want to thank everyone that well wishes when I was at the pinnacle of my sickness, now I only have a little congestion and a couple of coughs here and there, which I am grateful for. I hope that everyone had a great weekend and Father’s Day! But, now, I have a recipe for you that I actually made a couple of months ago for some of my friends.

These delightfully moist bundles of chocolate and oats make for a great snack that hits the spot without causing you to over-indulge; well, so long as you keep your distance from them so that you don’t become addicted. 😉 Naturally sweetened with dates, maple syrup and banana, there are some extra vitamins and fiber instead of tons of empty calories. I call that a win-win situation, myself.

  1. YUM…although id probably use WW flour…or spelt I rarely use AP flour….coconut and chocolate cake awesome…

    • WW flour would probably be great in this (with the addition of a little more liquid), I just don’t use it as much because my boyfriend doesn’t care for it. ha ha

      • Ha ha luckily for my hubby he’s not picky…. I rarely use white flour or sugar at all….

    • Thank you, Jemma! And thanks for stopping by, of course. 🙂
