Lower Fat Chocolate Chip Cookies

You may have noticed there have been no updates for a few days. That is because I was on a little summer vacation - the Brickyard 400 and the Indy Zoo! I made some cookies for us to bring for snacks at the race. I didn't have a recipe, but I wanted to make a lower fat chocolate chip cookie. These were wonderful!

Lower Fat Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

1 egg
1 c. fat free buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 c. semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line with parchment paper.
Mix egg, milk, vanilla, and sugars until well combined. Add dry ingredients and mix for another 20 seconds. Add chocolate chips and fold in.
Drop heaping spoon fulls onto sheet pan, bake for 15 minutes, or until puffy and golden.

Your cookies look great, but I saw your reference to the Brickyard 400and it really makes me miss home! I grew up in Indiana, went to school in Bloomington and was able to attend the Brickyard, but am now stuck in Wyoming (where there are rodeos...yeehaw!). I miss Indiana (so thanks for the reference to familiar things!!).
