Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Book Update: Middle School Language Arts test is done!!!  Woo hoo!!  I thought it was pretty easy except for a couple of novels I had never read.  I would post them… but afraid that ETS would hunt me down.  We have to sign over and over again that we won’t reveal any questions or any answers etc. etc.   Apparently, in the last ten years you now have your ankles checked, turn your pockets inside-out and be put through a metal detector.  Very different from the last time I took my teacher tests ten years ago.

Recipe:  I really liked these cookies for snacks or a breakfast on the go.  Both recipes contain all whole grains and no butter.  The reviews said it was “the best cookie I ever had!”.  Personally, I don’t agree and think the s’mores cookies are way better!   But, as a healthy cookie I think both versions were GREAT!

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup yogurt (any you want)

1.  Set oven to 350 degrees.
2.  In a big bowl mix dry stuff:  oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt.

4.  Add wet to dry and mix to combine.  Fold in the raisins and chocolate.
