Since cookies are a popular dessert among almost all of us, we decided to look into a healthy cookie recipe for those of us looking to stay on track with our diet. This oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe is the perfect dessert option for those of us looking to feed our sweet tooth without going too off track.
- 1 cup quick oats
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, spooned and leveled

- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

- about 1/2 to 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, divided
