Chocolate chunk oatmeal raisin cookies will give you that extra oomph to give this tough week one last go. They are filled with good stuff like oats and raisins, but also with the super not so good for you stuff, chocolate. What is a cookie without enormous amounts of chocolate? But like I said these cookies have a whole lot of good in them and that’s a yes in my book.

My son can spot a healthy cookie by a mile away and for some reason ever cookie is a chocolate cookie, I guess he gets that from his dad because they are fast foodies by heart. It’s pretty challenging living in a house with men who love fast foods and have the metabolism of a racehorse.

I love to live a healthy lifestyle, but that doesn’t make the clock stop. You still get older, but hitting the healthy ques makes it a bit more elegant (according to me that is). I love to treat myself every now and again, especially with dessert, and when you get the best of both in one cookie, you’ll hear no complaints from me.

This cookie is crunchy, with crispy raisins inside and the delish hints of sweet melted chocolate in between. You can use vegan chocolate if you like or semi-dark chocolate chunks.
