Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 12-15 cookies
cup quick oats
cup whole wheat flour, spooned and leveled
and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
scant 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
about 1/2 to 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, divided
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
- Pull out 2 medium bowls, one for dry ingredients, one for wet.
- In one bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
- Melt the butter in the other bowl. You don't have to melt it all the way, if there are a couple lumps it's okay. Let cool slightly.
- Whisk in the vanilla, then the egg. Whisk in the honey.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and use a wooden spoon to stir until it has just come together (don't overdo it).
- Save out about half of the chocolate chips. Use a sharp knife to roughly chop the remaining chocolate, then fold it into the dough.
- Refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes, or freeze for about 15 minutes.
- Use your hands to shape the dough into roughly 15 cookies (or 12 if you eat a lot of dough like me...)
- Place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-13 minutes, or until they have just started to brown on the edges.
- Once you remove them from the oven, immediately press the remaining chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies.
- Let cool on the pan for a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
- Drink with lots of milk!
