These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are not “healthier”.  They are simply my favorite cookies ever of all time!!!

Real Cookies

It seems like everyone is always searching for a “better for you” dessert, right?  Let’s face it, we all LOVE dessert!  You might find black bean brownies, avocado cake, and low carb everything.  But how do these desserts taste?  Well, in my humble opinion…TERRIBLE!!!  When it comes to dessert, I am a purist.  Give me the real thing so I can enjoy it.  Enjoying it means slowing down a little, sitting down, and actually tasting it.  This is called intentional eating.  And because I slow down to enjoy it, I feel satisfied with a small amount!

Warning!!!

This is NOT a low calorie food.
