Eat Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies and Grow Skinny

You’re on a diet, so cookies are out of the question, right?  Not necessarily!  It’s better to eat a small portion of something nutritious when you’re hungry rather than starve now and gorge later.  Be sensible, eat right, and you don’t have to ruin your figure.

Beat until creamy:


250 g (1 C) butter           

2 eggs

100 g peanut butter       

1 t vanilla

125 g (1/2 C) brown sugar

    200 g (1-1/2 C) flour        1 t baking soda
    200 g (2 C) oat flakes        ½ t salt

Mix in:
    250 g (1 ½ C) chocolate chips
    125 g (1 C) chopped nuts
    125 g (1 C) raisins

Drop by spoonful onto greased cookie sheets; flatten cookies slightly—they don’t spread while baking.
Bake 190°C (375°F) for 10 minutes.

    Agreed! They look tasty, I may have made very similar cookies during our PA snow storm last week, but no raisins.
