Low Calorie Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These chocolate chip oatmeal cookies might just be a little taste heaven, and the best part is you can eat them without feeling too much guilt. Afterall, oats themselves are a real nutrition powerhouse, loaded with heart healthy dietary fiber. If you really want to get crazy with nutrition, substitute raisins for the chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preparation:

1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Place the softened butter and the brown sugar and white sugar in a medium sized mixing bowl. With an electric beater, beat the butter and sugars until the mixture is smooth. Then, add the egg and the vanilla extract, and continue beating until the mixture is completely combined.

3. In a separate, large mixing bowl, combine the flour, old fashioned oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon. Assure that the mixture is well combined. With a large, sturdy spoon, mix in the butter and sugar mixture. Pour in the chocolate chips, and combine well.

4. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon to drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the baking sheet. Space the cookies about 2 inches apart from eachother.

5. Bake the cookies for ten to twleve minutes, until the edges of the cookies turn slightly brown. (bake a little less for soft cookies, and a little longer for crisp cookies).
