Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookies2
I literally make a batch of these every week as snacks for John, he can't get enough of them. I've shown you the recipe before, but I keep tweeking it by adding/subtracting things, lately I've been adding oats. For some reason when the temps start dropping I love eating oatmeal and basically adding oats into all types of things. Hence this alteration :)

What do you find yourself doing once the temps start to drop? I definitely start craving homemade soups and breads.

Now that the temperatures are falling, I'm definitely gravitating back towards the oven... After churning ice cream for months on end, I really miss plain old baking!

They sound good, and home-y-wholesome.  I especially like things like that for Hubs, who is diabetic.  How much tapioca flour?  And where do you find it?  I've never seen it!

Oh whoops! I didn't change the directions. I subbed in corn starch instead of the tapioca flour! Will update the post!
