These healthy, hearty cookies are a favorite in my family, my mom always has a batch or two in the freezer to snack on any time of day. They’re comfort food with good-for-you ingredients. Enjoy these TLC oatmeal cookies for breakfast, snack, or dessert. They deliver protein, healthy fat, fiber, and a sweet nutty taste that’s sure to satisfy. Crumble over yogurt for a chewy granola with a peanut butter twist that’s totally comforting, just like mom’s TLC.
