Simple and Low-Fat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

June 12, 2009

img_1986

Making lower fat cookies is always a challenge, but this time I wanted to make one of my favorite combinations-oatmeal and chocolate chip. I made these the other day just when three of my oldest son, Alec’s friends walking through the door, and they were so excited to have hot, fresh cookies out of the oven. When I told them they were low-fat, they said, “No way!” 

Low-Fat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep: 12 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Yield: 3 dozen
Ingredients
11/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup regular oats
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
11/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt), stirring with a whisk; set aside.

3. Place sugars and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add vanilla and egg; beat until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks.

This is my favorite cookie recipe!:) This recipe was listed in Cooking Light last year. I love making it with white chocolate chips, pecans, and dried fruit. It is also good to put 3/4 tsp of vanilla and 3/4 tsp of almond extract.
