I just can't say no to sweets.  So, I am always on the look out for something that is low sugar but still satisfying!  I tried this recipe for the first time today and I like it.  I might cook them a little longer next time to see if they crisp up a bit, but the flavor and texture are nice.  I used semi sweet choc because I didn't have dark on hand.

Ingredient List:

1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 c old fashioned oats
1/4 c unsalted butter, melted
2 tbsp 1% milk
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 oz dark choc melted (calculated with 1 oz only)


Preheat oven to 375degrees.  Line two baking sheets with, parchment paper, set aside.

In medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and oats, set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine melted butter, milk, honey, and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.

Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Drop 1 level tsp of batter onto prepared baking sheet, leaving space between them.  They spread in the oven.

Bake for 7-9 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes.  Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack and cool completely.

Spread melted chocolate in a thin layer on the bottom of one cookie and sandwich it with another one.  Repeat until all cookies are sandwiched.

Store in air tight container and enjoy!
