  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup uncooked regular oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup granular sweetener
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar sweetener
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate mini-morsels
  • Parchment paper


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted and fragrant.
  2. 2. Whisk together flour and next 4 ingredients. Beat sugar sweeteners and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Add vanilla and egg, beating until blended. Gradually add flour mixture, beating at low speed just until combined. Stir in toasted pecans and mini-morsels.
  3. 3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  4. 4. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks, and cool completely (about 20 minutes).
  5. Note: We tested with Whey Low 100% All Natural Granular Sweetener and Gold Brown Sugar Sweetener. This variation is slightly more dense and has a chewier texture, but it's equally delicious.
