Once again another non-vegan recipe. I PROMISE I will have some vegan recipes soon, but for now check out the awesomeness that is Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! They are chewy and salty and crispy – just how I love them!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 C butter or margarine
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C granulated sugar
3/4 C whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C rolled oats (not instant oatmeal)
1/2 C bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate chip (or more to taste)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.Cream butter and sugar until color lightens. Add egg and mix. Add combined flour, baking soda and cinnamon mixture and mix well. Add oats and combine. Lastly add the chocolate chips and mix in. Spoon cookie dough mixture onto a baking sheet in heaping spoonfuls. Bake for 8-10 minutes until browned and cooked through.
Makes approximately 20 cookies.
We love these cookies so much that the entire batch was gone in one sitting! Since I normally make small batches of cookies to begin with (and use whole grain/natural foods as often as possible) it wasn’t so terrible of us to gobble them all down! And besides, I’m pregnant and eating for two – I couldn’t help pouring a BIG glass of rice milk and attacking a small plate of cookies! ha.
