No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, Member MariaEMedina

I have been making this recipe for years. . .WITHOUT the added two cups of sugar. It turns out perfect every time and is super easy. The semi-sweet chips add plenty of sweetness on their own. Recently I started using coconut oil instead of the butter. Much healthier. . .and tastes good! I really feel like in our society we are eating too much sugar, adult onset as well as childhood diabetes is on the rise, and two cups is A LOT OF SUGAR. Otherwise fun recipe.
