I wish I could tell you where this recipe originated. A friend of mine posted it on Facebook and I wasn’t able to trace it back to the original recipe. When I saw this recipe I was like “Can these really be edible? Do I dare make these so-called ‘cookies'”? Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I made them. I was pleasantly surprised! They were chewy and delicious! My kids loved them and ate them up just like they would regular oatmeal cookies but I felt much better knowing they were really just eating fruit and oats! When I made these I did 2 batches, one with raisins and one with chocolate chips. The ones with chocolate chips, in my opinion, were better. Not quite as healthy, but a few chocolate chips never killed anyone (at least I hope not)! The raisin ones weren’t bad.. I just prefer chocolate to raisins. Anyway, this is a great way to curb that sugar craving (or chocolate craving if you use chocolate chips) and not feel guilty about blowing your diet. They also make for a great healthy snack for the kiddos. They are quick and easy to whip up and they stay good in an air-tight container (refrigerated) for days!
