Oatmeal chocolate chip. Unbelievable. Well worth the calories. And it has oatmeal, so it must be healthy, right?

What’s your favorite?

Looks yummy!

If it is healthy because of the oatmeal - depends on your beliefs! Do you hold excess fat or excess carbs responsable for obesity and associated deseases? Do you believe cholesterol is bad and that oatmeal will lower it? These are just some of the questions, and I will not put more in order not to get too much off topic.

I replace the oatmeal with ground almonds, as I prefer gluten free and low-carb. Add some ground carrots for the humidity, and butter/ghee and eggs for smoothness. Honey and 86% chocolate give the flavour.

cheers

Mmm, chocolate chip made with cassava flour, coconut sugar, maple syrup, and ghee is my current fave. I like to reheat them before eating so the chocolate chips are melty. Yum. Maybe need to go make some.

Lorinne, no way!  Chocolate is a food group all of its own at the top of the pyramid!!  My pyramid, anyway  :-)

Although I did read once that unsweetened dark chocolate sweetened with honey is actually good for us.

My recipe calls for both - so quit arguing and go try baking it! If you don't believe me, ask Catie George. She  baked them and agreed with me.

I ask Mr. Google what cookie had the most calories though I could not get an answer out of him except "Eat more cookies." (Not really)

My favorite is whatever kind of homemade cookies that we have.

I like cookies with pecans though I never have pecans so I never have pecan cookies.

Peanut butter chocolate chip, with 1/4 of the chocolate chips swapped for butterscotch chips.

I like the oatmeal with cranberries more than raisins.

I have to second Kevin,  with cranberries there is no worry if a dog gets involved (raisins/grapes can be toxic to dogs just like chocolate).!
 
this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
