Number of Servings: 80


    1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter
    1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 c. granulated sugar
    2 eggs
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 & 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1/2 tsp. salt
    3 c. Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
    1 c. dark chocolate chips


1. Heat over to 350 degrees.
2. Beat together margerine and sugars until creamy. (It's better if you let the butter sit out and warm up; melting it in the microwave doesn't give the batter the right consistency)
3. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
4. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.
5. Add combined flour mixture gradually to sugar mixture.
6. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
7. Make cookie balls the size of quarters and place one inch apart on cookie sheets.
8. Bake 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.


Number of Servings: 80

    One more thing to consider... check out the serving size. I cut the recipe in half, but I didn't get 40 cookies. Mine weren't even that big... so does that mean in order to get the 66 calorie cookie, we need to make them the size of a gum drop? Just wondering. - 6/25/09

    I use a 1 tablespoon size scoop to make them and I always come out with 80. I like them smaller because I can eat more and not feel as bad about it.

    These were very good. If you're vegan, you can use 1/4 cup of pureed fruit with 1/2 tsp baking powder to substitute an egg. I ended up using pumpkin because I had it on hand and they were fine. I don't know about lo-cal though - I ended up eating 8! - 7/28/09
