Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)
3/4 cup splenda
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 and 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 cups milk chocolate chips (11.5 oz package)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter, Splenda, brown sugar, and vanilla in a large bowl. Add eggs and beat until creamy. In a seperate bowl combine dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, salt, and oats. Gradually add dry mixture into wet mixture until completely incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips. Nuts are also optional. Drop teaspoon size balls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 14 minutes (my oven is weird...yours will probably be anywhere from 8-10 minutes) at 375 degrees. Remove from oven...Cool and eat!

Makes approximately 36 cookies.
