Healthier Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

When it comes to sweets the only thing that gets me time and time again is Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! I’m always looking for a healthier option that not only tastes good, but has less ingredients, especially BUTTER and SUGAR! At my weekend Retreat a few weeks ago my fellow Retreat Leader, Danielle Cuccio, shared an AMAZING Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe that I tried to recreate last night. Let me tell you, those cookies were so YUMMY that my husband had to restrain himself from eating the whole batch. AND for those of you that love cookie dough, this one’s for you too as there are no eggs!

So check out the recipe below, but do remember, everything is okay in moderation! 😉
