This Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe has been modified and essentially created by my wonderful mother who absolutely loves cookies.

She created a healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe that she doesn't have to feel bad about eating. She even considers them as a healthy snack, because, hey, who eats plain oatmeal?

There's always a little sugar thrown in there and dark semi-sweet chocolate chips are good for you (all those antioxidants). So what's not to love about these cookies?
