I love life, I love people and I love the relationship that I have with Jesus. I'm a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter. Come join with me a cup of coffee or tea!
My sister gave me this recipe several years ago and I just love it. I am not a big fan of oatmeal cookies, and in this recipe the oatmeal is ground in a blender so it is more of a flour. Try um' you'll like em'. When I made them this time I was short on chocolate chips but I did have some semi-sweet baking chocolate. We coarsley chopped this and used it instead of chips. I also added walnuts to half the recipe.
