Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love it anytime I can get a great whole wheat recipe, especially one that is a treat!  We had some friends over last weekend.  They live on a real farm.  Andrea brought these most delicious cookies and I was shocked that they were whole wheat.  The big chicks whipped some up after lunch and they turned out great.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 3/4 C. rolled oats
  • 1 C. whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 C. butter, softened
  • 1/4 canola oil
  • 1/3 C. sugar
  • 1/3 C. brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 C. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.  Grind oats in a blender or food processor into a flour like consistency. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter in mixer until fluffy. Add oil, both sugars, egg and vanilla and beat until smooth and creamy. With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, at least 1 inch apart onto baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until firm around the edges and golden on top, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
