    Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies

    WebMD Recipe from

    Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies

    EatingWell reader Beverley Sharpe of Santa Barbara, California, contributed this healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe. She gave chocolate chip cookies a healthy update by cutting back on sugar and incorporating whole grains. To increase protein, Sharpe replaces the rolled oats with 1 cup almond meal.

    This Recipe Is:
    Prep: 10 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes
    • 3/4   cup
      rolled oats
    • 1   cup
      whole-wheat flour
    • 1/2   teaspoon
      baking soda
    • 1/2   teaspoon
    • 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   cup
      chocolate chips
    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
    2. Grind oats in a blender or food processor. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add oil, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth and creamy. With the mixer running, add the dry ingredients, beating on low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
    3. Drop the dough by heaping teaspoonfuls, at least 1 inch apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until firm around the edges and golden on top, about 15 minutes. Cool the cookies for 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
