Healthy No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

By January 24, 2016 , , , , ,

When you need something sweet and indulgent, sometimes you just gotta feed that need.

But that doesn't mean it's needs to be loaded with sugar and carbs necessarily. Now I've got nothing against sugar personally, but in an effort to alter my mild dependency on sweets, it never hurts to find alternatives!

Presently, I am on the Advocare 24-day Challenge and by the way it's in no way a diet - it is part of improving my overall lifestyle and nutritional intake. Good stuff! The fact of the matter is my previous diet was largely made up of carbs, sugar and fat. I always thought healthy food was gross and tasteless, but what I'm finding is quite the opposite. However, that's another blog post for another day. :)

Today, it's all about cookies ... the no-bake kind! These are delicious and guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. This recipe makes about two dozen - plenty to pack one in your lunch bag all week. Now that's what I call #winning!

Enjoy, friends!
