These egg free, whole grain cookies are chewy yet slightly crisp, and the perfect balance between “thin”, “flat”, “oat” and “chocolate. Chocolate rocks make a great alternative to other standard chocolate chips or candy coated chocolate, but you can of course use those too if you can’t find the rocks (avail. online: http://www.nuts.com/chocolatessweets/chocolate-rocks/).
