Healthy Cookies: Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip

A healthy cookie is the perfect complement to an afternoon cup of earl grey, or for breakfast. The great thing is, you get a great tasting cookie with this combo of agave nectar and honey. Bonus, if you are trying to lean toward more healthy fats – you can feel good about just using a bit of olive oil instead of butter.

Some of us are all for the healthy choices, and some say, “hey, if I’m going to eat a cookie,” it better be a real treat and somewhat of splurge. Which one are you? Let us know on Instagram at either our NWFavorites account or Fittbe, depending upon which one is more your jam. And speaking of jam, we have some favorite jam picks for your cozy autumn tea and toast morning.

On to the cooksters… These are so easy to make, and you don’t even need to putt out your Kitchen Aid. Believe us, we love it – but the thing is heavy and I don’t keep it out on the counter, lol!
