..Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies



Mike made these absolutely delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies the other night when we were craving something sweet but didn't want to be too over indulgent.  They are low fat and tasty so they got our stamp of approval.  Try 'em out!

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup plain unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions
1.  Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
3.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars. Beat in the egg, followed by the applesauce and the vanilla extract. Working by hand, stir in the flour mixture and the oats until just combined and no streaks of flour remain. Stir in the chocolate chips.
4.  Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, flattening each cookie slightly.  Bake for about 10-12 minute Cookies will be light brown at the edges when done.

  10. I think chocolate chips are about 100 times better than raisins in oatmeal cookies. I've never understood the raisin thing. These look delicious.
