Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Zuchinni Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies 

These soft cookies studded with dark chocolate chunks taste so good, you would never guess they are healthy too. Packed with veggies and flavor, these cookies will not disappoint.


How do you make a ordinary Monday a fantastic Monday? You start off your morning with a run and in the afternoon, you make cookies.

Zuchinni oatmeal dark chocolate chunk cookies that is. 


This afternoon, I realized I only had one of my healthy cookies left. Thankfully, within a half an hour that changed.

During the week, I love having healthy desserts on hand. That way, when my sweet tooth strikes, I have a healthy option to reach for! 


These cookies are soft and tender, like a cross between zuchinni bread and a regular oatmeal cookie. 

Enjoy with a cup of milk or (highly recommend a hot cup of coffee!)
