I want to post my new favorite chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe....AWESOME

I found it in the "Diabetic Living" magazine. It's a great source of deliciously simple, and simply delicious recipes whether you're diabetic or just interested in NOT becoming diabetic. :)


1 cup rolled oats (you can get mixed grains at the health food store)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar (or Splenda brown sugar blend)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 - 6 oz container plain low-fat yogurt (that's 3/4 cup of plain yogurt)
2 eggs (I like to use 3 for more protein, and then a little more flour if necessary)
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour (I use 1 cup wheat and 1 1/4 cups white)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate pieces (12 oz)

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Spread oats in a shallow baking pan. Bake 10 minutes or until toasted, stirring once; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, baking soda, and salt; beat until combined. Beat in yogurt, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in oats, and any remaining flour. Stir in chocolate pieces.
3. Drop dough by rounded tsp 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until bottoms are browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

PREPARE FOR YUMMY GOODNESS! Oh my goodness these cookies are the BEST EVER! They are soft, delicious, and addictive! That added yogurt is brilliant....who knew?

  2. Dad told me that your cookies were extremely tasty. I'd ask you to mail me some in a package, but I have a feeling they wouldn't be quite as good after international travel. :(

    (p.s. I deleted my first post because I accidentally wrote "nasty" instead of "tasty". I'm glad I caught it! Because he said that they were way tasty!)
