Chocolate Meets Fiber

Was it love at first sight? Did the chocolate say to the peanut butter – “how YOU doin?” The answer is YES. The oatmeal and peanut butter add a kick of fiber, but are blended together with the chocolate chips in a smooth cheek-to-cheek dance reminicent of Cliff and Clair Huxtable. Ah, the sweet smell of cookies baking.

I went to Bethenny Frankel’s Girls Night Out tour this week for my birthday, so I thought I should try one of her recipes. Mmmmm fiber.

Why is there no photo? Because like my Bangin Buffalo Dip, it was just not photogenic. Don’t worry – they are delarcious!!
