Rolled-Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies

I decided to make these on a whim with the girls yesterday. They turned out delicious! I didn't even get a chance to take a picture that's how good they were ;) Seriously, we ate them all up pretty quickly. And then my ILs came over to watch the girls and my MIL ate a few and kept saying how good they were. Yum! Best part, for goooood cookies, these are pretty healthy too!

Recipe was inspired from I made a few changes to the recipe, like not grinding the oats, substituting liquid stevia w/ vanilla in place of sugar, and coconut oil in place of canola oil...oh, and I forgot to add the chocolate chips, but that was an accident and I will be adding them next time! Though I have to say, they were still so good, chocolate was not missed ;)

  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
