Sandy’s Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

As far as cookies go, these are definitely a healthier option. That doesn’t mean you should eat these instead of an apple or sliced vegetables. This recipe was passed to me by a wonderful baker named Sandy. I have several of her recipes, but this one is my favorite. These are great start of fall snacks, they are hearty, filling, and full of wonderfulness.
