Energizing Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

January 8, 2015

I used to be so-so about chocolate.  Even during my time of the month I didn’t crave it.  All my girlfriends in high school thought I was crazy and happily took my chocolate off my hands for me.  The past few years have been a slow shift toward me enjoying chocolate more and more.  Dark chocolate became my go-to sweet of choice – the darker the better.  During late pregnancy that changed.  All of a sudden I didn’t care what kind of chocolate it was – I wanted it!  Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate…  Those cravings have not gone away since Caleb was born.  Instead of munching on chocolate I figured I’d make a treat that gave a little nutritional value. (Plus, oatmeal helps my milk supply!) Energizing Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Ingredients 1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
