Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Cookies

I made Blake and myself these awesome cookies the other day. 

I made them not only because I wanted a treat, but because these have only 80 calories and 1 gram of fiber per cookie... They also have only half the fat and the cholesterol as the more traditional chocolate chip, oatmeal cookies. 

Let me just tell you now, you will love these cookies! 

  • 1/2 cup(s) (packed) brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) trans fat–free vegetable oil spread (60% to 70% oil)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 2 1/2 cup(s) quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup(s) bittersweet (62% cacao) or semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In large bowl, with mixer on medium-low speed, beat sugars and vegetable spread until well blended, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula.
3. Add egg, egg white, and vanilla; beat until smooth.
4. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt until mixed.
5. With wooden spoon, stir in oats and chocolate chips until well combined.
6. Drop dough by rounded measuring tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet.
7. Bake cookies 12 to 13 minutes or until golden. With a wide metal spatula, transfer cookies to wire rack to cool.

8. Repeat until all batter is used. Store in tightly sealed containers up to 3 days.
