Lower My Cholesterol Oatmeal Cookies

Garrison Wayne


I recently was told by the Doc that I need to get my cholesterol down by 30 points in 90 days or I have to start taking statin drugs.......so......cookies have egg yolks and butter.....and they won't help me get to my goal. I made this recipe to accommodate my sweet tooth and maybe even help lower my cholesterol at the same time. Oats are notorious for lowering cholesterol and the Omega-3 in some cooking oils is beneficial too. I don't think anyone will know that these are a healthier choice, unless you tell them.....Lower Cholesterol...here I come.
