I know these aren’t the most beautiful cookies you’ve ever seen, but boy are they delicious. They’re moist, chocolatey and chewy. The perfect combo in my book.
Oh, and guess what? They’re healthy too!
And when I say healthy, I don’t mean “healthy”. I mean seriously, they’re healthy. Like no gluten, no dairy, no sugar, no oil, no eggs, loaded with fruits, and vegetables.
I know what you’re saying, “Excuse me, what? Gag. They sound disgusting.” But don’t let the ingredients fool you. These cookies are legit. Like too legit to quit. Like so legit that I ate an entire batch in one day.
But I’m not feeling bad about it because these babies are my insanely healthy oatmeal cookies. And you ain’t gotta feel bad about these!
This is a recipe that I plan to make every single day because when I say they’re guilt-free, I really mean it. Honestly, it’s like eating a bowl of oatmeal, but in cookie form. Cookies for breakfast. Cookies for lunch. Cookies for dinner. Inanely healthy oatmeal cookies all day, every day.
Okay, I’m done. Now it’s time to get your cookie on. Enjoy!
