Soft and chewy oatmeal dark chocolate cookies made with wholesome ingredients and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate. For right around 100 calories per cookie, they leave you with no reason to skip dessert!
I’d like to formally welcome National Dessert Day with open arms. Did you guys know about this? I can always rely on my Instagram feed to notify me of national food holidays. This is one I can definitely get behind!My two favorite classic cookies are chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin. Hands down. Though I need to be in a specific mood for each of them. If i’m having a cookie for dessert, chocolate chip always wins. Chocolate in general, really. Though if i’m just craving something a little sweet or if I slip into that ‘3PM slump’ feeling at work, oatmeal raisin will usually be my calling.
Lucky for me, this hybrid version of my two favorites made its way into my life and “cookie moods” are no longer relevant. I just want it ALL the time.Can we also revel in the fact that each cookie only has 3 grams of sugar? That is WINNING, my friends. The nutrition profile honestly makes them ideal for breakfast on-the-go, too. Grab two on your way out the door for a total of 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein – more than a bowl of Cheerios will give ya!
They have a slight crunch on the outside and a soft and chewy inside which is exactly how I love my cookies. And that OOZING chocolate!!? I’ll take 10 please.
Being a major texture person, I’ve always loved oatmeal things because of the chew. Bars, cookies, oats in general (I only have a hundred oat recipes on here…). They just add this glorious chew to baked goods while packing in extra fiber and nutritious whole grains. Combined with my other favorite thing, dark chocolate, and i’m just the happiest girl on the planet.These are one of those healthy baked goods that truly don’t taste like “healthy cookies”. Trust me, i’ve tried my fair share of dried out, spongey, tasteless, blah cookies that have impressive nutritionals, yet taste like a piece of cardboard or a dog treat. I’m all about healthy alternatives being equally as satisfying and these cookies are a true testament.
I’m getting insanely hungry typing this post and I can feel the drool coming on, so this is where I bid you adieu.Please do your taste buds a favor and bake these delicious cookies. You deserve them! 🙂
