Cookies with no sugar?! That has to be a crime! And it very well may be, but their flavor is just as sinful. Add to the rap sheet turning an old oatmeal cookie on its head, and you’ll have a dessert-for-breakfast, rebel recipe that only real risk-takers are willing to make. But I promise, it’s worth getting caught with your hands in the cookie jar.
I know white chocolate isn’t the healthiest, but sometimes you gotta live on the edge. Besides, this recipe can be varied: use pecans instead of walnuts, go nut-less, omit the white chocolate or swap it for dark. Do whatever your inner rebel desires!
