Do you have friends or family coming to visit? Treat them to some delicious and relatively healthy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies for dessert. This recipe is very simple and not time consuming to whip up.
These are healthy, fiber packed, indulgent and delicious! Another tip, you must let them sit about 5 minutes in a pan after baking since they tend to break and still very soft before transferring them onto rack to cool. They are crunchy outside but chewy inside, great for morning tea or afternoon snack too.
