Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_6986

I love making cookies that make me feel like I am giving my kids something healthier than the average cookie. These cookies are loaded with oats and I put some flax seed meal in them too which also helps with replacing eggs. I like using large flake oats as it gives the cookies a nice texture. You can use any add-ins you want like raisins, coconut, nuts, or butterscotch chips. I had chocolate chips on hand so that’s what went in.
