Recipe of the Week: Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 ½ c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
½ c. oatmeal
1 bag chocolate chips
Use a mixer to mix together butter, brown sugar, vanilla and egg. Next, add the flour, baking soda and salt, and mix with the mixer. Use a spoon and mix in the oatmeal and chocolate chips.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
* I made my cookies a tad bigger than usual. I used a heaping tablespoon and it made about 24-30 cookies. It took 9 ½ minutes for them to cook and get a little brown on the bottom.
**I have tried making these cookies without the oatmeal before and they turned out flat, crispy and were not very appetizing. This version with the oatmeal is very tasty!
