Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It didn’t seem fair that I was making all sorts of holiday goodies and my husband couldn’t enjoy any of them. So I decided I’d make a batch of diabetic friendly Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies for him. What make these friendly for him?

  1. They use whole wheat flour, oatmeal, and flax seed
  2. Baking Splenda

Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup baking Splenda
  • ½ cup Splenda brown sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup unbleached white flour
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • 1 cup oats
  • ½ cup flax seed meal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cups chopped walnuts
  • 1 package Hershey’s sugar free chocolate chips

Instructions
  1. Cream butter, baking Splenda and Splenda brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, oats, oat bran, flaxseed, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir into creamed mixture.
  4. Add nuts and chocolate chips, mix until blended.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 – 12 minutes.

This batch turned out a more appealing consistency than the last batch which wasn’t as soft as I wanted it to be. They were so tasty that others tried them and didn’t realize they were “sugar free”. Whoot! My next challenge is to figure out how to make peanut butter cookies that are spouse friendly. Guessing that may turn out to be more of a challenge.
