Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies created by LifeIsGood

Using canola oil instead of butter slashes sat fat, while switching to whole whole wheat flour, plus adding oats, doubles the fiber. The result: a crunchy cookie with a chewy center. I found this recipe in Prevention magazine. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.

    Divine! I have a very sweet tooth that is quite partial to the occasional cookie, so any cookie that can be a bit healthier is a plus for me. These tasted fantastic and I enjoyed the texture. Next time though i think I will use less choc chips as 3/4 cup was too much, maybe 1/2 cup would suffice. Thanks for posting!

    I loved the idea of making a healthier version of chocolate chip cookies. These were really good, too! My family enjoyed these cookies and didn't really notice they were made healthier.
