These delicious treats take care of the fiercest sweet tooth! This cookie provides the familiar tastes of an old fashioned oatmeal cookie rolled up into a healthier version!
And is it really too much of a stretch to say they might just be good for you?  Especially if you agree with me that chocolate is a health food! The unique sweetness comes from the amazing stevia plant. Stevia contains no calories and has been found to stabilize blood sugar. So go ahead and enjoy these “Good For You” cookies – a modern twist on an old classic.

    All of my favorite ingredients combined in a cookie! I can’t wait to try these. Do you use organic chocolate chips?

    Yes on the organic chocolate. I usually buy semi sweet, or milk chocolate in the bulk food section. Enjoy and have fun experimenting!
