Cranberry Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cranberry Nut Chocolate Chip Cookie

Chocolate chips or cranberries might seem like the best part about these cookies, but it's really that each cookie is 75 calories. These cookies taste so decadent no one needs to know they're packed with whole wheat, fiber-rich oats, and omega-rich walnuts.
