Mistake , but it worked out....

So I made these cookies today, and as usual making them from memory with no recipe. And I was chit chatting, and trying to hurry. Which I guess you shouldn't do when baking.....and I forgot the granulated sugar. Yes the sugar! Well it didn't turn out too bad. I might not have know, because the taste was still delicious, but I went to fill the sugar canister and realized I hadn't used it.....Ugh!
It turned out fine, and my friends on a diet thought it was terrific ......they could afford to eat two. I don't know where that thinking came from, but I go with it! LOL So here it is my delicious -less sugar Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie.
