Healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

These healthy, easy to make Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect treat for Halloween.  With small amounts of sugar and butter these cookies are still so very sweet and wholesome.

My toddler and her friends love these soft cookies right out of the oven.  An occasional oatmeal cookie can satisfy a sweet tooth and is a much healthier option than a shop bought biscuit or chocolate bar.

Oats contain soluble fibre which reduces your bad cholesterol levels and decreases your risk of heart disease.  Soluble fibre can also help regulate blood sugar levels.

Oats are a great source of Vitamin A for healthy eyes and vitamin K which is important for blood clotting.
