Had a baking urge today…probably because I’ve been hearing daily (via Garrett) requests from the JU soccer team for me to send them goodies.
I’m a sucker, what can I say?
These are the chewy chocolate-chip oatmeal cookies from SkinnyTaste’s food blog. I left out the “low fat” descriptor from the title, because that doesn’t matter to 30 hungry guys in training. I made a double batch and used a melon baller to scoop the cookie dough, but yielded 65 cookies. Sent about 2/3 with Garrett to the scrimmage tonight, because I couldn’t bear making a big cookie batch and only have a couple left over for us! No guilt here (low-fat, remember) since these are made with oatmeal, applesauce and a Splenda sugar blend.
SkinnyTaste.com is a great blog for food inspiration and guidelines to make your favorite recipes in a very healthy way. Gina, the author, includes nutritional info on each recipe, including Weight Watcher points (if that’s your style). I’ve made a ton of her recipes, and have never been disappointed. Hint: scroll into comments for insights into FAQ and how others have altered the recipe. Click over and pick out a meal for dinner this week…you won’t be sorry!
