These Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect, classic cookie made with some healthier, wholesome swaps.
1Whole wheat flour can be subbed with whole wheat white, or regular all-purpose but you may need about 1/4 cup more of all-purpose if subbing.
2You can replace coconut sugar with dark brown sugar
3Make sure your oil and butter are only softened, not melted. The cookies will not maintain their shape if using melted butter. You can also use all butter here – but NOT all coconut oil.
4Use a room temperature egg, so the coconut oil does not solidify while combining. You could add in the oats and stir by hand at the end with the chocolate chips, but I liked that some of the oats get broken down when combined with the flour. I used my stand mixer when adding all of ingredients, and then use a large spoon to stir in the chocolate chips.
PRO TIP: I space my cookies in rows of 3 and 2, alternating every other, just to make sure cookies won’t spread into each other.
