Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Pecans - Country Heat/21 Day Fix

When I got my hands on the Country Heat program, (the new program by Autumn Calabrese, the creator of the 21 Day Fix), I quickly opened up the nutrition and recipe guide and looked through all the dishes - and went right to the treat recipes. This recipe was the first to catch my eye: chocolate chips and  toasted pecans in a oatmeal cookie??!! That's program approved?!! YES, PLEASE!

This was the very first recipe I made and my whole family loved it....AND as a busy mom, it was easy to make: one mixing bowl (not even a large one, I just used one of our dinnerware bowls), a cookie sheet and a fork (yes, I mixed with a fork).

I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
