{food} oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

These cookies have become a bit of a problem.
They are too good.
The daddy sneaks one before a meal, hoping nobody will see.
Of course, the littlest dooga sees him and the cookie crumbs and begins to beg.
How can we have different rules for grownups than for kids?
So we've been eating cookies before meals.
Just once or twice.

And the other times mommy and daddy do a better job at sneaking.
I did just a few things to healthify this recipe, so we could eat more of them.
Substituted ww flour for one cup of white.
Reduced the white sugar by 1/4 cup.
And used 3/4 of a cup of coconut oil instead of a cup of butter.
Me thinks the changes are just about right.
