This is the recipe for the “healthy” cookies I made for my sister Kayla’s bridal shower.  Everyone seemed to like them well enough.  Even with the cake, chocolate chunk cookies, and sugar cookies, I didn’t have many left.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips – I used mini chips in mine


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar.
  2. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture.
  4. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-12 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire racks.
