EatingWell Chocolate Chip Cookies
This awesome lacy chocolate chip cookie is given a healthful makeover with oats and whole-wheat flour, and canola oil to replace some of the butter.
Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate the dough for up to 1 day. Store the baked cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
Tip: Whole-wheat pastry flour is milled from soft wheat. It contains less gluten than regular whole-wheat flour and helps ensure a tender result in delicate baked goods while providing the nutritional benefits of whole grains. Find it at large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
How To Soften Butter
Let butter stand at room temperature for about 1 hour before using. Warm room temperatures may soften butter more quickly. If you're in a hurry, cut the butter into small pieces and let soften for about 15 minutes. (Softening butter in the microwave is not recommended; microwaves heat unevenly and may melt, instead of soften, butter quickly.)
