Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite cookie recipe!  We make them once every week.   I have actually started doubling the recipe because our family eats them so quickly!  (I won’t give you the recipe doubled, because that is a lot of cookies, but remember that is always an option!)

These Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies only have 80 calories per cookie and this cookie is much healthier than most & we love it!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup chocolate chips (you can add more, but I don’t like them to be too chocolatey)
1 T. wheat germ, if you have it (or flax seed)

 

How to make them:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step #1- Grind oats in a blender or food processor. Add flour, baking soda and salt.
blend

Step #2- In a separate bowl, beat butter until fluffy. To the butter, add oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla; beat until creamy. Add the dry ingredients, beating on low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Step #3- Drop the dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, 1 inch apart, onto the greased baking sheets.

Step #4- Bake cookies until firm around the edges and golden on top, about 12-14 minutes I love chewy (healthy!) cookies!

Our kids love when I add extra chocolate chips to half of the batch…  I make one tray and then add chocolate chips before baking another tray (I prefer them without many chocolate chips, so the first tray is for me. Yum!)  Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

I hope that you enjoy that recipe as much as we do!  We love to make cookies.  It is just a way that our family bonds in the kitchen, taking turns, learning math and science in our real-life baking experiments.  The kids love the way that the house smells when they come home from school to find a fresh batch of cookies in the oven!

If you are trying to make healthier cookies, a book that we love is Nourishing Cookies.  She uses all natural (healthy) ingredients to make FANTASTIC cookies!  They are all really good- I’m sure you’ll love them.  (You can see more when you click on the picture below)
