That is NOT the case with the cookie I'm sharing with you today.
My boys LOVE the way these taste, but honestly, I love how they look. Just look at these pretty cookies!
Perfect if you need to bake something for school or church or whatever. I'm betting you'll find any excuse to whip up these babies!!
One warning: They're not healthy. So don't freak out when you see how much oil is in the recipe. The goal is a pretty and wonderful tasting cookie. Keep that in mind.
For those of you who use a gram scale, I'm including all the weights for you. Hope that makes the recipe even sweeter for you!

Tracy's Terrific Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 cups of flour, weight of 360g
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups Quaker Old Fashion oatmeal, not quick 1 minute, weight of 240g
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar, weight of 200g
1 cup dark brown sugar, weight of 220g
1 cup of mini chocolate chips, weight of 165g (You can use regular chocolate chips, but your cookie will not be as pretty. One secret to a pretty cookie is using mini chocolate chips.)
1 cup canola oil
1/3 cup milk
- Pre-heat oven to 375.
- Get a LARGE bowl. This recipe makes about 70 cookies!
- Mix all ingredients. Keep scooping up the flour in the bottom of the bowl. It will a while to get it all mixed in, just keep at it!
- Line cookie pans with foil and spray with Pam. (See tip below)
- Drop small amounts of dough on the cookie sheet. Smaller amounts of dough will give you a prettier cookie.
- Bake for about 9 minutes. Don't bake too long and don't worry if they look a touch underdone. They are fine. Check because your oven make cook different.
- Let cookies cool for a few minutes. They will look very puffy at first, but will "settle down" within a few minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
The goal is to make sure you put dough on a cool cookie sheet. Very important!
Carb Info: Your ingredients may be slightly different, but I'll share my carb count information. If you follow the directions, your cookies should be similar. For me, one batch of dough is 938 carbs. I make small cookies, so I usually get about 70 cookies. That makes each cookie about 13 carbs. Of course, some are bigger and some are smaller. You know the routine! The carb factor is .60 Hope that helps.
Now, go make your family happy with some yummy cookies!
