Jennifer's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These are exceptional! They are moderate in carbs, but more of a maintenance-level cookie. A regular oatmeal raisin cookie from MacDonald's comes in at 21 grams of carbs, so these are fully one third of the carbs. I made these for my girlfriends who are not low-carbers. They loved them!
