Recipe: Healthy Cookies!

I finally found a recipe that I like for "healthy" chocolate chip cookies! I say "healthy" because there is still white sugar and butter- but as far as cookies go, these are pretty good! Here is an article on Canola Oil and why it is a healthy fat to cook with, and I love the whole wheat flour substitute. I added natural peanut butter (TJoes has a great natural peanut butter, the only ingredient is peanuts- no salt, sugar, etc..) and it made them divine!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies: 
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp 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 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Then, blend oats until smooth, and add other ingredients. Stir until all ingredients are blended. Drop the dough in teaspoons, about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 15 minutes :)
*JM NOTEI added 1/2 cup of peanut butter and it really makes them yummy! 
These are also great frozen- then pull a few out to bake. DO NOT over bake- if anything pull them out a little under done!
