Jan's (sort of) Healthy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
When it comes to cookies "healthy" is relative. Jan's are a bit better than the rest with whole wheat flour, nuts and heart-healthy oatmeal. And they're chocolatey/nutty good.
Here's how you make them:
1. Pre-heat oven 350
2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Place ping pong ball sized balls of dough on greased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 7-9 minutes - until delicious.
