I went over to my friend Jayme’s today and she was busy baking. She is one of those bakers who can swap out ingredients and not stress about it. If you are anything like me, I have to have everything exact. I follow instructions to the letter and when someone tells me “just throw in a little of this and a little of that” – forget it…. that recipe is history for me!

So, she found this Chewy Oatmeal Cookies recipe on the back of a brown sugar bag and decided to make it a healthier chewy oatmeal cookie!

I always thought that oatmeal cookies were “healthy”, but when I looked at the ingredients – boy was I wrong! 4 eggs…. 1 1/2 cups shortening – yikes!!!

The best part is when I tasted these – OMG were they amazing!!! I am telling you that you will not be disappointed in these cookies. You would never know they were a healthier chewy oatmeal cookie!

Here’s What You Need:

  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 bag white chocolate chips
  • OPTIONAL: Banana and dried cherries

  1. Hi Jenn =) I like your recepie of this cookies, but please could you explain me wich volume has to be cup for ingridients and if I cannot find Canola Oil could it be replaced by something else =)

    Thank you

    With kind regards Antonina

  2. Hi Jenn, just found this on The Country Cook Weekly Potluck # 115. These sound so good and I’ve been wanting to make some Oatmeal Cookies for my husband. His favorite cookie is Oatmeal Raisin and I love chocolate so this sounds like a winner for both of us. I have a few questions:

    I’m not familiar with GoGo Squeeze Apple Sauce…any substitute if I can’t find that?
    What size bag (oz.) chocolate chips?
    Can I use some raisins instead of the white chocolate chips and if so, how much would you recommend?

    Thank you, and I am pinning this.

    1. Hi Kim! GoGo Squeeze is a squeezable applesauce. They are all natural, no high fructose corn syrup and no added colors or flavors. My kids love them! You can substitute with any applesauce of your choice…. this is just what we used!!! The packages are 3.2 ounces each – so you would just want to swap it out for that!!! For the chocolate chips – it is really to preference – personally, I would go about 1/2 to 3/4 of a package. Let me know what you think

  3. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will make them with my granddaughter. She is just 4 and a really picky eater. I think these will be good and good for her;)
