Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by The Legal Chef

These are my favorite cookies! This is slightly adapted from a recipe from Ward Street Bistro. I keep meaning to play around with the fat and try oil/applesauce in place of some of the butter, but these cookies are just so good as is. Instead of using the wheat germ, you could use 1/4 cup flour.

Made and reviewed for SPRING PAC 2009: I love oatmeal CC cookies but wasn't sure how I would like these with wheat flour and wheat germ, but did want to give them a try. I'm really glad I did....the texture and flavor was wonderful and I've already ended up making extra batches for friends. Thanks for a great recipe!
