Low Calorie Cookie Recipe – Oatmeal, Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip

After an awesome workout on my Wii Fit, I proceeded into the kitchen to make cookies. The recipe was a weight watchers recipe that I modified – that recipe was 90 calories a cookie; according to caloriecount mine were 80! The original recipe was just peanut butter with some crunchy peanut butter and peanut butter chips.

I did make them for work tomorrow, but of course I had to eat ONE… and some batter too. Seriously, who can resit three of the best cookies mixed together? Oatmeal, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip. Yum Yum. My mouth is watering still thinking about the warm tray of cookies still on the stove (damn, make that TWO cookies eaten).
