Normally I am not a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but chocolate seems to be a game changer for me and these cookies are no exception.  My mom and I have been obsessing over these for weeks and we decided we had to share the recipe with our favorite internet friends.

As a bonus, these cookies are a great bedtime snack for those with blood sugar issues like us. We are hypoglycemic and traditional sugary desserts can easily lead to a bad night’s sleep. The oatmeal is filling, but they don’t contain loads of sugar that will keep you up all night scrolling through Facebook.
