Triple Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

Triple Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies #SkinnyTip

Oatmeal Cookie Craving Besides his rule of only not eating cherries unless they’re in Kool-Aid, my not-so-gourmet hubby only eats oatmeal when it’s boiled and served with milk and brown sugar. So when you see oatmeal cookies on my blog, it’s because “I” have a craving. Chewy and chock full of three types of chocolate discs […]
