This is a wonderful, melt-in-your-mouth, low-fat oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that your whole family will love! My husband's favorite...I can never keep them in the cookie jar!
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 egg whites
- 1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, water, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg whites and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Blend in the oats and mini chocolate chips. Drop dough by half-teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 7 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks. Cool at least 10 minutes before eating.
