These were pretty yummy. They use oil, not butter so they have little-to-no trans fats. We made them even a bit healthier by substituting 1/2 cup of the flour with white whole wheat flour. Also added 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut. My husband and 10-year old were very enthusiastic.
Easy Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies
I nicknamed these "Trev" cookies because my husband Trevor likes them so much. Before that they were "Marsha" cookies, named for a friend who gave me the recipe. It's an easy recipe because you don't have to cream butter or shortening; you just dump and stir ingredients in a big bowl. --Jan Smith
