Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, and Pecan Cookies

Key Ingredients: Chocolate chips, oatmeal, pecans

A good recipe to make with kids, these drop cookies are easy and fun. The recipe calls for chocolate mini-chips, but the regular ones work fine. Nutrition bonus: The pecans provide a crunchy texture and good nutrition to boot. These tasty tree nuts contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals – including vitamin A, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins, and zinc―plus good-for-you fats.
