Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I absolutely love chocolate chip cookies. Especially dark, rich, fluffy, extra chocolatey ones…

These were unbelievably delicious. I took one bite and thought they were the best cookies I’ve ever made! They are that good. And so soft and moist, the texture is just perfect.

I used whole wheat flour in this recipe to make it healthier, and because I actually prefer whole wheat to white flour.

Another way that I lightened up this recipe is by using apple sauce to substitute for some of the oil.

You can’t taste the difference, and it cuts some major calories.

Apple sauce also makes the cookies have a cake like texture once they cool.

They are dense and so moist. Definitely my favorite way to eat cookies!

Health Tip: when buying apple sauce, make sure to check the ingredients. Many have added sugar, which is unnecessary (apples are already sweet!) This is a great brand that I like to use.

Growing up, one of my brothers was severely allergic to dairy, so my mom figured out how to make dairy free chocolate chip cookies for him.

By using earth balance in place of butter, and dairy free chocolate chips (relatively easy to find), these cookies are lactose free!
