Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Have I mentioned that I love chocolate chip cookies? I found this recipe on I do already have an awesome recipe for chocolate chip cookies. However, I am trying to make my food a little healthier. As my sister has pointed out to me on my "healthier" zucchini muffins, they aren't that much different. Cookies and muffins are never going to be health food. But a a few things like while wheat flour and oatmeal --which is good for lowering cholesterol and adding fiber--can help. These are very good. Excellent even.

Bev's Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup canola oil
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. 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.
