Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted to thank my mom this week especially, for getting us a recipe.  She had a couple funerals to go to and was at the bedside of a friend who died.  Not only that, but she spends a couple hours a day with her 94 year old mom at the nursing home, and my dad stays home and takes care of his mom who is almost 95 and needs around the clock care!  So thanks mom for getting this to me in the wee hours of the morning!

Here is her post!

I’m not feeling real healthy-creative tonight, so guess what we get for a weekend treat this week…..yeah, it’s cookies, heavy duty and chuck full of everything but tofu!  We had them last summer at Dustin’s picnic, if you happened to be there.  But I suppose we can see how healthy we can get them and and still be to-die-for, eh?!
