Healthy and Hearty Oatmeal Cookies

I eat my fair share of unhealthy desserts, but sometimes, I get on health kicks and even my desserts have to be healthy (doesn’t happen very often).  This was one of those times.

Most of the time when I try to make healthy desserts, they taste like crap… but these actually turned out really well.  The honey and little bit of brown sugar somehow gave them just enough sweetness and the chia seed added a nice crunch.  These are yummy treats for snacks and/or breakfast.

What’s your favorite healthy dessert?

  1. Oatmeal cookies are a total health favorite! (I also like adding crazy amount of chocolate and totally ruining their health factor.) And my brain likes to call any fruit dessert healthy…so there’s that too.
