Recipe: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay so although I’ve been eating way healthier than usual, I still treat myself on occasion. These cookies were my guilty pleasure a few weeks back. It’s super important to treat yourself!!

Yummy!!!

I feel like I have some kind of obsession with oatmeal lately. This is my third recipe in a row that called forย it. Heck, at least it’s healthier. I ate ten of them in one sitting… Oopsies.

Worth it. As usual.
