Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I want a cookie, damn it.

For the last week, I have been debating whether to make these healthy cookies. I havent gotten around to it and in the meantime made some pretty healthy muffins instead. Said muffins aren't disappearing like I envisioned. It certainly doesn't help that there are 12 of them and T is out of town. Z likes them and I do too, but they just arent the 'stuffing-your-face' type.

That said, they are still staring me in the face, but I want a cookie.

Not any cookie will do. Its gotta be chocolate chip, and its gotta have oats in it.

I have been doing pretty good lately, not eating so many sweets. really. only a few chocolate chips in peanut butter each night. or, a pumpkin cookie. But, last night, I had a pint of ice cream in my freezer. my favorite BJ flavor, chocolate mint cookie. and, I had more than a few bites. and, I think it helped me sleep. so, the spiral downward begins.

where is that cookie.

So, I made these.

these were oatmeal and chocolate chip made with a little spice and a little bit of wheat flour, just to kid myself.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas baking soda
1/2 teas salt
1/2 teas cinnamon
1/8 teas nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips.

no, I didnt plan for all the measurements to be in 1/2 or 1. but, what an easy recipe to remember!

cream butter and sugars. add vanilla and egg, cream. premix and then add the dry ingredients. add the chocolate chips.
bake at 350 around 12 minutes. longer if you like em crunchier. makes just shy of 2 dozen.
