Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Home alone on a Saturday night = time to bake cookies and take a bubble bath.


Halfway into my cookie excursion, I realized I only had one egg left and barely a few chocolate chips. So it seems it was meant to be… I needed to make healthy cookies. Turns out, you can substitute 1 tablespoon vinegar + 1 teaspoon baking soda for an egg (prepare for some fizz). Since I didn’t have many chocolate chips, I had room for more rolled oats. Hello, fiber!

Because of all the fiber, they are definitely filling. They would probably make a good snack for hiking or alongside a cup of coffee for breakfast.
