Oatmeal- Cocoa Cookies


Don’t get me wrong, I love butter but I decided to sub out for sunflower seed oil for a change. Rich in antioxidant, vitamin E, it’s sure to be on your feel-good list! This dairy-free cookie is a great to start your day with a jolt of cocoa and a bit ‘o oats!

Can I add something? Happy Registered Dietitian Day!!!
