Cookies are my krypthnte for my sweet tooth. (Ice cream, dark chocolate, and peanut butter round out my sugary weaknesses) As much as I try, I go just a little out of control indulging in holiday cookies. Between baking our holiday traditions, attending an annual holiday cookie party and these short bread wrapped Hershey kiss cookies my MIL makes- I completely abandon all caution and eat cookies by the half dozen. #ImtheRealCookieMonster

The good new: before the first of the new year I begin to want a sugar detox. Or really it could be because the cookies are just stale? At any rate, I’m able to step away from the cookies without harming anyone after indulging all month long. So it’s a win for control at this point.

However, the force is strong and my sweet tooth wants some more cookie. My January health goals are strong too- so a girl’s gotta do what she’s gotta do. Compromise and make something that resembles a cookie but really is a healthy baked breakfast instead. Hello, chocolate chip almond oatmeal bake.

It’s soft and chewy. Just the right amount of chocolate. Sugar free with clean ingredients. And super easy to make!
