Healthier oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

You know you're going to eat the cookies anyway, why not make them slightly better for you?

Healthier oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

1-1/4 c all pupose flour
3/4 c whole wheat flour
1 c oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c shortening
1/2 c granulated sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 c chocolate chips

Mix ingredients together. Cook at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Makes about 24 cookies.

Tip: cookies made with whole wheat look darker. To see if they are done check to see if the edges are browned.

Tip: My mom says you can reduce the sugar in a recipe by 1/3 and not notice too much. This recipe is already sugar reduced, although you can change the 3/4 c brown sugar to be 1/2 c brown sugar.
