Healthy Eating and Healthy Living ~ two of my top {personal} priorities lately, but, this girl still loves to eat and to bake ~ what to do?  I’ve been converting some of my usual recipes into healthier ones but also got the Hungry Girl to the Max Cookbook.  The first recipe I tried was this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Softie ~ it was delicious.  Even my husband and kids loved them

    • I’m trying hard, too, Karianne ~ my problem is I LOVE to eat, but I’m keeping healthy snacks around the house and trying a lot of new recipes so that’s helping.

      Have a fabulous week and thanks SO MUCH for stopping by!

  2. These cookies sound tasty, I think I’ll have to try them this weekend.
    I found you via Parlo & Logi’s F-it Friday. Have a good weekend!

  3. These look tasty. I like that they use whole wheat flour, that’s all I have on hand so I won’t have to buy regular flour.

    • Thanks, Toodie! I think it will be great with whole wheat flour. I usually use whatever I have on hand, also.

      Have a wonderful weekend!
