Hi everyone!

Long time, no see. If this is your first time here my name is Kat. I took a hiatus from the world of blogging due to my university studies. Since then I have graduated with a degree in Kinesiology, gotten my yoga teacher certification, and started a Youtube channel!
I have recently started a second degree in Education and plan on becoming a physical education and health teacher.

This blog has always stayed close to my heart since I still love creating healthy and delicious desserts. A couple things happened the last year that inspired me start my blog back up again including meeting a successful blogger during an event and talking about using blogs in one of my university classes. I'm still a busy university student but my life has settled a little and I think now this is the best time to blog again! Plus I have a new fancy camera to take photos :)

Today I give you an oatmeal cookie recipe! These cookies are deliciously crispy and chewy with just the right amount of sweetness. They go perfectly with a cup of tea or milk. Enjoy!

1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
