Healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

I’m excited to share two healthy AND delicious recipes with you today. I couldn’t just stop at one. I’ve been having fun testing recipes with the Vi-Shape. My family ate these healthy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies literally seconds after I snapped the picture. They never would have guessed there was no butter added in these cookies and only 50 calories per cookie. I’m so sneaky! ;)

    A few years ago I lost 35 lbs. using the Visalus products. My favorite shake was 1% milk, Tropicana 50 orange juice, 1/2 banana, shake mix and ice. Tastes like an Orange Julius. I drink a few shakes a week and have not gained any of my weight back. Definitely trying your Moo’d!

    Amazing blog. I learned so many wonderful things in it. Can’t wait to try those recipes especially that I am craving for chocolate chip cookies. This is quite a different one though because it was intended to be healthier.

    Sorry, new to your Blog & I posted before commenting. :) I was just going to add that I make very similar cookies, except I add flax and peanut butter. They are great for a fast breakfast.

    I didn’t see any Visalus on the recipe. How much did you use for the oatmeal cookie recipe? Thank you!

      If you want to use Visalus, I used 1 scoop, but you do not need it to make these! :)

      Hi Karla! The ViShape in these cookies is optional. You can leave it out, or you can add 1-2 Tb. in your cookies! :)
