Guilt-Free Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

 

Healthy Eating and Healthy Living ~ two of my top {personal} priorities lately, but, this girl still loves to eat and to bake ~ what to do?  I've been converting some of my usual recipes into healthier ones but also got the Hungry Girl to the Max Cookbook.  The first recipe I tried was this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Softie ~ it was delicious.  Even my husband and kids loved them

      Thanks, Mel ~ it's nice to "meet" you!

  5. These look tasty. I like that they use whole wheat flour, that's all I have on hand so I won't have to buy regular flour.

    1. Mary Beth says:

      Thanks, Toodie! I think it will be great with whole wheat flour. I usually use whatever I have on hand, also.

      Have a wonderful weekend!
