Food – milk chocolate oatmeal cookies

I’m always in the mood to eat cookies brsugarchoccoconutbut I don’t always feel like making them. Part of the problem is that whenever I do make them I end up eating more than I should. This recipe is really easy and fairly healthy as far as cookies go…..(brown sugar instead of white, oats and only 1 egg) so I couldn’t wait to make them.  They’re quick and delicious and I just added coconut flakes.  You can double the recipe but if you want to ensure you don’t eat too many, maybe it’s a good idea to stick to the original.

Brown Sugar Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour

½ tsp. baking soda

½ tsp. fine sea salt

½ cup unsalted butter, either at room temperature or slightly chilled

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

½ quick oats

1 cup milk chocolate chips

unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Preheat oven to 325F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  If you don’t have parchment then spray baking sheets lightly with oil.

Stir flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.  Beat butter with sugar in a large bowl until fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture until combined.  Stir in oats and chocolate chips.  Spoon 2 Tbsp. portions of dough, 3 in. apart, onto prepared sheets.  Flatten them slightly using your fingers.

Bake in centre of oven until edges are golden but centres are soft, 12-15 minutes.  Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely.  Pour yourself a glass of milk!

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week.  But let’s face it – they’ll only last one or two days at most.

Makes 12-16 cookies.

If you really need to know they’re about 200 calories per cookie.
