This is a chewy, cakey-type cookie, rather than a thin crisp one. I definitely don't like this made with mini chocolate chips. The original recipe said to bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, but I burned the first batch terribly, so I bake them at 350 for 10-12 minutes. The batter is VERY thick, but you shouldn't need to add extra milk or melt the butter -- I never have and they always turn out well.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄3 cup butter
- 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chunks
- Combine sugars, butter, eggs whites, and vanilla til creamy.
- Combine the flours, oats, soda, and salt and add to butter mixture.
- Stir just until moistened -- do not overmix.
- Stir in chocolate pieces.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart on baking sheets that have been sprayed with nonstick spray.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
- Remove cookies to racks to cool.
These were delicious and even better than I'd hoped! I read the other review so added 4 T milk instead of 2. This did help make the batter a bit more manageable, but it's still crumbly. Just use your fingers to form the dough before dropping on the cookie sheet. Mine cooked perfectly in 8 mins and weren't cakey at all. I got 56 cookies out of the batch, which brings the calories down to only 64 per cookie. So delicious, what a winner!!
I have made this recipe a couple of times. My kids LOVE these so much! My husband also loves them! I think they are excellent. They are low fat and low cal, but you would never know that unless you were the one making them and saw the nutritional info. They are a winner, and they will be at the top of my cookie list forever!!!! I had no trouble with the dough. It was moist but not too moist. If you use a hand mixer you can mix it on low, it will mix better and more throughly then if you mix it by hand. If you try to mix it by hand, the dough will be dry, I tried that the first time I made them. (then got out my hand mixer and all was great.) I made them to take to my Mom's and to my MIL's for Easter tomorrow. They turned out PERFECT!!!!!!!! Try them you won't be sorry!!!!!!!
The batter wasn't nearly moist enough, I had to add more milk... could it be that the amount noted was incorrect? I also did not melt the butter since it didn't mention it, this made the wet ingredients lumpy rather than creamy.
