Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

During January, I didn’t post any sweets because I was trying to be kind to the New Year’s resolution goers. I was still eating sweets, I will never give them up, but I was trying to eat a little healthier after my holiday cookie binge. I decided to create a healthier cookie so I could still enjoy a cookie a day. Yes, I eat a cookie every single day. A cookie a day keeps the doctor away. Ok, maybe not, but cookies keep me happy and that is SO important.

My healthier cookie turned out to be a major winner. They are now my go to cookies. Whenever I am craving cookies, I turn to these babies!

The cookies are made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, oats, and dark chocolate. That’s right, no butter! Don’t turn up your nose, because they are AMAZING!

Josh actually turned up his nose the first time I made them. He heard whole wheat flour and walked away, but the sweet cookie aroma got the best of him and came back to the kitchen and tried one. I wish you could have seen his face! He was pleasantly surprised! He loved them! I showed him who’s the cookie boss:) Josh devoured his cookie and immediately reached for another cookie, but I took the plate away. Mock my cookies and you don’t get seconds…ha! Just kidding. I let him have another one. I am thrilled he loves my healthier cookies! And Caleb gave them two thumbs up too! Our entire family is head over heels in love with these cookies!

These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies made with coconut oil have won a spot on my top ten cookie list of all-time. I’ve baked an obscene amount of cookies so making it in the top 10 is HUGE! You NEED to try these cookies, like today, like right now! Get baking!

These healthier cookies are my FAVORITE! They are made with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, oats, and dark chocolate! Bake a batch today!

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened (not melted)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together softened coconut oil, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat until smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Don’t overmix. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
  5. Form the cookie dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons of dough. Place on prepared baking sheet, 2-inches apart. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden around the edges and soft in the center. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Note-cookies will keep in an airtight container on the counter for 2 days. The cookies also freeze well. If you want to cut back on the chocolate chips, you can. I have made them with 1/2 cup chocolate chips and they are still delicious. You can also use raisins or dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips.
