Loving…My Favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

To get your week started on a sweet start, I thought  you might enjoy my absolute favorite:

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.

It’s easy to whip up and hedges on healthy. But let’s face it we’re talking cookies here and I for one am not about a “diet” version of any cookie. If you’re having a cookie it has always been my firm belief that you should HAVE A COOKIE and enjoy it! Trust me when I say: It’s better to have a real bonified full fat cookie than 10 diet cookie! Seriously…why oh why do they need to put a cookie on a diet anyway?!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and have a sweet week ahead.
