Healthy oatmeal cookie- so good!
- 12 ounces Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup organic butter, softened
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 coconut sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 cups oats, uncooked (or 8oz weighed)
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color (about 4 minutes). Add vanilla and egg, and mix on low speed until incorporated. Stir flour with baking soda, salt, and spices; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats. Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes for a chewy cookie, 10 to 11 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on a cookie sheet; remove to wire cooling racks. Store in tightly covered container.
** They will be dark in color but taste very sweet. They are flat and spread like a lace cookie, with a thin crispy edge and chewy inside. I have even added some quinoa, barley, and raisins for the daring ones:)
