Healthy Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Just call me cookie monster. Wow, I have been doing a LOT of food related posts as of late. A new workout post soon to come, I promise. I must be really hungry or something? As you probably know, my go to "healthy" cookie is usually my favorite zucchini cookies. It almost seems like i'm cheating on them or something to post a rival...but nonetheless...I have found a rival. I was searching for a new healthy cookie recipe and I came across one that I gave a little makeover to. I'll be honest, I'm quite pleased with the results.
