Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Again, a recipe from Lillie - our resident guest blogger.

3/4 c. oats ground up (I use little food processor)
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter softened
1/4 c. canola oil
1/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chocolate chips

Beat butter until fluffy, mix in wet, mix in dry. Stir in choc. chips.

Bake at 350' for 8-11 min ( I think I do about 9)

**They're not low fat or anything so they're still good- just better fat (canola oil), and no white flour. Of course grinding your own wheat is the healthiest but who has time for that?
The dough seems weird compared to normal CC cookies because it's more oily but the cookies are so yummy if you like that sort of oaty, whole wheat flavor ( I LOVE it). They're from Cooking Light or Eating Well.. don't remember.

Welcome, Lillie! Could you get ANY cuter? This sounds like a good recipe to use wheat from our food storage.
