Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

    Advertisement
  • 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.

  • 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.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: The cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Storage smarts: To extend the life of your baked goods, store them in an airtight container in a single layer or between layers of parchment paper to prevent sticking.

This is my new FAVORITE recipe!!! Thanks so much for sharing. A lot of people are asking for more and wanting the recipe so I m so happy to share. I usually make 4 batches at a times and they don t last long. I am making them right now and the total of 12 batches to take to Italy with me and my daughter to share with her 12 classmates and five of us adults. I use 100% olive oil since I don t like to use margarine because it seems to dry out the cookies within a few short hours. My daughter is allergic to peanuts tree nuts and dairy so I use Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Mega Chunkcs. I am so happy that you shared this amazing recipe. Thank you! You are such a blessing!!!!

I've been making Bev's recipe for years and it's perfect as is. Tonight in an effort to make them even healthier I swapped out the oil and used unsweetened applesauce. I also used 1/4 c. ground flax seed in place of 1/4 c. of the whole wheat flour. The cookies came out softer and a little fluffier than usual but are also a bit drier which I expected. In the future when I make them for myself I'll make them this way again. My family prefers them by the recipe however. This is definitely a keeper. Read More

Love them! But be careful with substitutions I have made these countless times over the years and they are one our favorites. I love the oats and whole wheat (I use white whole wheat) and I always sub out 1/4 cup ww flour for 2 tablespoons flaxseed and 2 almond flour. Most whole wheat cookies just aren't as good as those made with regular white flour. Having said that I decided to try some of the suggestions made by others to make them more healthy. I started small: substituted 2 tablespoons of butter for 2 Greek yogurt. What a mistake! I could believe how much this changed the cookie! Dry more cakey. Ok if you're ok with a healthy texture cookie (which I can live with) but definitely not a treat or something a kid would eat which is why I make them. There is a tipping point here: I try to make healthier treats for my family but they have to eat it first. Back to full amount of butter. Pros: Easy and always turns out yummy Read More

My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! I love this recipe! I've had so many people comment on these cookies when I've made them and I always direct them to this recipe. A few changes I've tried and like: 1/4 cup coconut oil in place of canola oil which of course provides a nice coconut flavor (I've used unsweetened applesauce in place of the butter and oil too which changes the texture but still has a good result...I find having some butter gives it the texture I like not too moist but not crispy either). Instead of 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar I do 1/4 cup brown sugar and 3 spoonfuls of honey (about 3 Tbsp) which makes them sweet enough for my taste. I've done a mixture for the flour that has turned out nice - 1/2 cup whole wheat 1/4 cup oat bran and 1/4 almond meal. I also don't grind the oats because I like the texture of whole oats. Great recipe thanks for sharing Bev! Pros: Healthy great taste Read More

Great cookies with some slight changes 2 things to make them less crumbly and more yummy: 1 - use 1/2 cup butter and no oil 2 - use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour Also add 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon if you like cinnamon I recognize these changes make the cookie slightly less healthy BUT they taste a bazillion times better and are still a much healthier alternative than traditional chocolate chip cookies Read More

too sweet Hi i made these today with my kids;) i substituted the white sugar with honey which made the mixture custard like and super sweet.

Excellent Cake-type Chocolate Chip Cookie As they were baking we noticed that they didn't spread out. We knew before taking our first bite that these were not going to be the traditional chocolate chip cookie. These ARE delicious. However they look like little mounds not like a chocolate chip cookie. We did add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts to the recipe to up the protein. The next time we make these we are going to try flattening them out.

Yummy cookie I used 3/4 steel cut oats and 1/4 c flaxseed. I put those into the blender to grind them up. I also used applesauce instead of butter. I'm not sure how much applesauce I used but I had to add more flour to get it to cookie dough consistency. My daughter was helping so I adjusted it according to her taste. She wanted it sweeter so I added more applesauce then I would have to add more flour. They came out chewy and muffin-like but they taste great! Pros: healthy cookie tastes great Read More

Great base to start from These cookies are fantastic just as written but it also is a fabulous base recipe that you can easily modify for variety. I have cut sugar even lower by using Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and Truvia Baking Blend - just remember to use HALF the amount of these substitutes otherwise it is too sweet. I also make a double batch of the cookie dough and freeze it in individual cookie portions. That way when hubby or I want cookies we can bake just 6 or so and not have extras sitting around - excellent way to portion control sweets. Read More

This cookie came out great! I have tried many recipes which are all good but for a low fat low carb cookie you cannot find anything that tastes as good. I used 1/2 white & 1/2 whole wheat flour because I thought they might come out too heavy but next time I will go with 100% whole wheat flour. The oats are a great addition to cut the carbs.

Wow I am impressed that these stray so much from traditional chocolate chip cookies and yet taste so similar. No one would ever notice that these were not full fat white flour cookies unless you told them. Definitely a recipe I will make again. Read More

I love that they have whole-wheat flour in them. It makes them much more filling. They have a just the right amount of sweetness. I used all purpous flour instead of the ground oats and it works just as well. Read More

Awesome recipe! So delicious! Even picky cousin loved them. I think these will replace our standard Chocolate Chip Cookies for a while. Thanks for the recipe Bev! Read More

Our standard choc chip cookies from now on. The kids love them. I prefer the almond meal variation as the combination with whole wheat pastry flour (which we use in place of all-purpose in most of our baking) gives the cookie a terrific flavor. Will try the bittersweet choc chips to tone down the sweetness a bit. Read More

What a great recipe. I made them for my kids who tolerate healthy food way better than my husband and he even liked them. I substituted the almond meal for the oat flour and they have a wonderful taste and texture. I did chill the dough (after putting them on the baking sheet) for a few minutes so they wouldn't flatten too much in the oven and baked them for only 10 minutes. They look beautiful and taste great! Thanks!! Read More

Delicious! I had to use all white sugar because I was out of brown sugar so I added a tablespoon molasses for flavor and they are awesome...The texture is great for storage too. Read More

These are great healthy-ish cookies! I have to admit I did make them a little healthier by subing the 1/4 cup of oil for applesauce and being a little lazy just put the oats in as is and they still turned out awesome. Definitely will make again. I used half chocolate and half white chips. Read More

If you are looking for a healthy recipe that is as good as regular chocolate chip cookies this is not it. They are ok but chewy and grainy. My husband and I do not like the texture at all and they are not nearly as sweet. I was hoping they would be very similar to my old standby but sadly they are not. I know they are a healthy version but I think I would rather eat the regular cookies less often. They are much better. Read More
