Roll 'Em, Roll 'Em, Oats Oats Oats

Last week I had the biggest urge to bake, so I bought ingredients....And then they sat for a week, until I finally had the time to sit and relax. Relaxing to me, is expression, in this case, through baking.

While I'm still sitting in a healthy binge, I need to satisfy my sweet tooth, while still staying within my limits.
The item of choice was Walnut Oat & Raisin cookies. I didn't have whole wheat flour which is what the recipe called for, and I would have replaced the sugar with Splenda; however, nonetheless, they were still a pretty delicious treat.

I recently bought health, after-work-out cookies from my gym, and they seemed to be a similar resemblance. They felt healthy, and a protein packed snack. Which, by the way, was also sweetened with crushed pineapple =)

If you're interested in a snack that will leave you feeling guilt-free, I'd recommend these.
