Once again my Mom comes through with a healthy (and yummy!) version of a favorite cookie…
After searching through our recipe file, I found these Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I made a few changes to the recipe (I tend to do that often when I cook!)
Still, the cookies were easy to make, moist & flavorful!
