The recipe is under the lid so,

while Leone is gone on auxiliary business, I think I'll make oatmeal cookies and I think I'll throw in a handful of dark chocolate chips. Hey, if the have oatmeal in them they have to be health food don't they?

Besides, I really like oatmeal cookies and having the oven on on a cold day seems like a good idea. Hope I can find the parchment paper so I don't have to grease cookie sheets.

She made a pumpkin pecan pie last night but need some portable treat to carry around.

Was supposed to gain weight and this seems to be a good way.

Those cookies sound like health food to me! If there are any nuts hanging around, you could add those, too. I'll bet your kitchen smells delicious!

That's healthy baking, good for the soul and good for the tummy. As I recall, there is dark chocolate, oats, and eggs, all good for you.....And soo good to the taste. I hope you found the parchment paper, it sure helps with the clean up.

Raisins. Add raisins. The golden kind are especially good. That is way more healthful than the ooey gooey peanut butter cornflake things I made last night. I took them to work for the young guys so I would not over indulge.

I love oatmeal cookies.As a young child that's what my mother baked. I wonder had chocolate chip cookies been invented? Seriously, I don't remember having those until I was older. George, bet yours are great.

Add dried cranberries, along with the raisins.

And use sunflower seeds instead of nuts. Although some kinds of nuts are supposed to be better than others.

And make a few dozen extra to put in the freezer since I can't get over there to sample :)
