Skinny Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love to bake. This pregnancy my nursery nesting has been shifted into baking. Minus the dishes after, baking is what relaxes me and I love being able to share what I bake with others. So, when I found this new cookie recipe with NO white flour and NO sugar and just 2 TBS of butter, I had to try it. I adjusted it to make it just a little more delicious with some of my favorite baking go-to ingredients. As you move forward into this new school year and holiday season, don’t be afraid to try new things in the kitchen! Something might surprise you 🙂
