Healthy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Happy weekend, everyone!

I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes for delicious-looking, extra large cookies floating around, and I thought to myself, “We definitely need a healthy version of these”.

Although, this kind of begs the question:  If a healthy cookie is made jumbo-sized, is it still healthy?

Hmmm…  I’m saying yes! If you’re in doubt, you can just eat half. 😉

Jump to Recipe!

I’m finally feeling like myself again after that cold I had earlier this week, and yesterday I got to spend most of the day in the kitchen working on some new recipes.  I can’t wait to share them with you guys!

Of course, the Healthy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies had to be priority #1. 🙂

Doesn’t that picture just fill your heart with joy?  I know it makes me happy.  The only thing I’m not happy about is that we already ate all the cookies.  Bummer.
