This time of year is right up my alley! I love the cooler weather. The time with family. And of course, the food! I have already started watching Christmas movies. Drinking hot chocolate. Baking cookies. Drinking hot tea. And it feels amazing.

As we go through this holiday season, I will keep you all up to date with recipes that I use, and how I convert them to…not so sugary and calorie-y.

For example, last night I found this recipe on It is for oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies. The ingredients and adjustments are below. I also used smaller cookie portions to make more cookies, so the calorie intake would be less. I actually only made 1/3 of the cookies and froze/refrigerated the rest.

1 1/2 All purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon- the notes in the post said they would omit the cinnamon, so I did

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup unsalted butter

1/4 cup granulated sugar- I used Swerve granulated

1 cup light brown sugar- I used Swerve Brown Sugar

2 large eggs

2 tsp vanilla

3 cups rolled oats- I used 2 cups

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips- You can swap for sugar free chocolate chips, or even dark chocolate.

You can find the original recipe at

Happy Baking
