I absolutely love this cookie recipe!! It is my family's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. My kids love them. And I like it because it's healthier. I use a mix of whole grain flours - whole wheat, spelt, quinoa, ground flax, almond meal, soy flour (I keep a big container with a mix of flours that I use for baking). I use oat bran instead of the oatmeal, or if I do use oatmeal, I don't grind it, I just throw it in. I use Earth Balance spread for the butter. Sometimes I add chopped walnuts, which is really yummy, but I have to grind them up to hide them from the kids. Adding ground walnuts makes the cookies even moister. This is a great chocolate chip cookie recipe!


Great cookies! Made them just as the recipe calls for except that I used mini chocolate chips which dispersed throughout the batter very well. This is a keeper and will be a regular in our house!


They are in the oven right now , 4 more min and they are ready, I'm trusting you on this one...


These turned out really good, thank you! I'm a really lazy cook - I just throw everything in and mix it together at the same time. They still turned out great. I also used white chocolate chips and threw in some dried cranberries. nom

I replaced the oil for applesauce and used whole wheat flour. I'm a nanny for two doctors and they loved that I made their children health-conscience cookies that the girls absolutely LOVED!! My picky husband loved it as well, thank you so much with sharing this incredible recipe!!
