Hearty Oatmeal Cookies with Mini White and Dark Chocolate Chips

Of all of the cookies out there I think the oatmeal cookie has to be the healthiest.  I mean really, how can a cookie recipe that calls for 3 cups of oatmeal be bad for you?  Talk about hearty, these cookies are just that.

I got this recipe from That Skinny Chick Can Bake.  (Thanks Liz!) I did make a few minor adjustments to the recipe.  I used margarine instead of butter,  increased the vanilla from one teaspoon to two, and used 1/2 cup of mini dark chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips instead of the butterscotch chips.  I also added a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter.  I noticed Liz’s cookies appear to have a slightly different texture than mine, but let me tell you this, these cookies are delicious!   I love how the white and dark chocolate chips compliment each other in these cookies. 

Hop over to the blog That Skinny Chick Can Bake to get her original recipe.  And take special notice in what Liz dipped her cookies in.  Oh man!

  1. I’m going with your theory of these being healthy. I always say oatmeal cookies aren’t my favorite, but every time I eat them, I love them. And I would love them more with chocolate chips in them! So I’m pinning these for when I want “healthy.” Just curious – you swapped out butter for margarine — just curious as to why. YUM!!!

  2. I have to agree, oatmeal cookies do have a healthier side to them. I love adding fun ingredients to them, and making them hearty and a perfect snack option:-) Your cookies look delicious! Hugs, Terra

  3. Oh Eileen….you’ve read my mind! I’ve been craving oatmeal cookies for about 2 weeks now! These look scrumptious and I’ll have to pop over to Liz’s for the recipe! But I definitely have to make some soon! : )

  4. I think I make more oatmeal cookies than any other kinds, probably because it makes me feel better that I add heart-healthy oatmeal in them. Problem is since I think they’re healthy, I tend to indulge more. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the recipe, Eileen. Will I see you tomorrow at Fiesta Friday?

    1. Thanks for the great recipe Liz! I’m going to use butter the next time I make them (I was out). I think your cookies look slightly moister than mine. But honestly, I can’t stay out of them. I gave some to friends our ours and they commented several times on how good they were.
