This is Liz's Healthy Devilish Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies made from scratch! Everyone loves these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, and you'll see why!
Believe it or not, this is a weight watcher cookie with just a few more points added....okay, maybe more than just a few more points! It's a moist cookie made with all the fine ingredients the recipe calls for, but with more chocolate added on top, which is why Liz calls these devilish cookies!
She bakes dozens at a time and freezes them in trays, so she can bring them whenever she visits friends. Everyone raves how delicious, and just can't get enough of them! To say the least, they are very addicting! So make sure that when you eat these, have someone nearby to stop you. Because, you CAN'T just have two! This is by far our favorite cookie recipe! You must try these.....
Here's a Tip: This recipe calls for pecan nuts, but you may substitute any kind of nut you prefer....or leave them out completely. Either way they taste just as great! Enjoy!
