The kids were craving cookie...or maybe we were (wink) so here are some cookies with a healthyish twist. We always like adding oatmeal to any baked good as it ups the fiber and whole grains in anything (and somehow saying its an oatmeal cookie) makes it sound healthier. The mix of the two kinds of chocolates gives you some morsels that hold their shape and other chunks that melt and get gooey, just how we like it!
