Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m constantly trying to make our favorite desserts slightly healthier. While these still contain sugar and chocolate, they are still healthier than your average cookie. These cookies have the consistency of a chewy granola bar instead of a cookie since there are twice as many oats to flour.  Oatmeal chocolate chip has always been my favorite cookie and these little devils are one of my go-to recipes when I have a sweet tooth.  These are super easy and I can’t even count the number of times I’ve made these!  I typically only bake 6 at a time so we each get two for dessert, then I put the dough back in the fridge until the next night.  I know myself and my family, if these bad boys were baked and on the counter, there would be no stopping us.  So now, I bake 6 at a time since we have no self control!
