Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These will be my go-to chocolate chip cookies! My 3-year-old son woke me up and DEMANDED cookies for breakfast. After I explained I wanted the “magic word”, he said please, and I proceeded to look for a healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. I found these, and I’m so happy I did! They’re so yummy – and they are all gone. Instead of Rice Flour, I used oatmeal bran (just what I had) but I bet the’ll be just as good with any other flour.

I’ll just copy and paste from the original site (just in case!)

These easy and quick oatmeal cookies also contain peanut butter and chocolate chips.
