IMG_0030 When we think of an oatmeal cookie we think it’s kind of healthy already-with the oatmeal and all, right?  These are even better for you.

A simple tip to try with your baking is to substitute coconut oil for butter! Our recipe came from the Nestle Butterscotch Chip package and we used whole wheat flour and coconut oil.  Not only delicious, but better for you! The recipe is below for your convenience.

Happy Baking!
