The Chocolate Chip Oatmeal
chip cookie may be the most beloved in the United States, but
the chocolate chip oatmeal cookie is quickly growing in
popularity. The addition of oatmeal gives the cookie a more
interesting texture and a slightly nutty flavor. However, the
biggest draw for many people are the health benefits that whole
grain oats bring to the table. The high fiber in oats can help
lower cholesterol, cleanse the colon and generally contribute to

since they still have a fair amount of fat and empty calories.
