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! ;)

I thought I’d share another recipe with you that I’ve been making with the ViSalus product almost daily. It’s soo yummy! If you love Peanut Butter Moo’d from Jamba Juice, you’ll love this!

    What is visalus powder?

    • Wanda posted on July 2, 2013 at 8:42 am (#

      Vislaus is pure nutrition. In 2 scoops of shake you get a multitude of nutrition more than what you could ever eat in one sitting. If you would like a free sample I will be happy to send you one. Just email me with your address. :) You can also go to to learn more about it.

        I would like to try a sample of the Vi. I was using another product but it caused problems I don’t want to discuss here. I was told it just ridding my body of toxins. I am curious if another powder would do the same.

      It’s an amazing nutritional shake. I’m down 31 pounds! Love my Vi-shake & now all these wonderful recipes on this site! :)

    We LOVE visalus! These recipes look so yummy! My hubby has lost over 60 pounds and so far I am down 10! We have replaced my income and are loving our healthy new life style! Thanks for sharing the recipes!

      Wow, awesome job on your healthy new life style! Thanks for sharing Jessica!

    Seriously! The more I eat that stuff, the better it tastes… I think I might be addicted…

    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!

      That recipe sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing Ann! :)

    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.

    • Jamielyn posted on July 3, 2013 at 8:01 pm (#

      Yum, peanut butter is one of my faves so I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for commenting!

    I love my Vi Shakes! I have been a promoter and on The Challenge for almost a year and lost 14lbs! I’m so excited to use my shake mix for healthy cooking and not just shakes :)

    • Jamielyn posted on August 1, 2013 at 3:55 pm (#

      Wow, that’s awesome!! There are so many different things you can make, I love it! :)

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

    • Jamielyn posted on September 2, 2013 at 5:02 pm (#

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

  11. Karla posted on January 20, 2014 at 9:34 am (#

    YOu didn’t mention how much ViShape you put in the cookies??

    • Jamielyn posted on January 31, 2014 at 3:59 pm (#

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

  12. Barbara posted on April 25, 2014 at 11:09 pm (#

    Where do you purchase the Vi shape sweet protein powder?

    • Jamielyn posted on April 30, 2014 at 2:33 pm (#

      Hi Barbara! You can purchase it on Amazon or on the Visalus website! :)

    How many calories in the shake?

    • Jamielyn posted on May 14, 2014 at 1:00 am (#

      Hi Katie! I’m not sure how many calories, but you could go to to help figure it out! :)
