Heart Healthy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Baking brings me so much joy! I love everything from brainstorming ideas to creating, the process itself, and the end result. Baking is a great way to immerse yourself in the moment- the smells, the taste, the sweet moments shared with excited little helpers when you are lucky to have them by your side! :)Embracing a new healthier way of eating has brought out the inner baker in me, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Frequently I am searching for new ways to make great treats meant to be shared by family and friends in a heart healthy way. After all, I’m all about heart.

Here is my latest creation:
