It would be next to impossible to enjoy this through-the-house-follow-the-mouse romp without some yummy chocolate chip cookies. Although this is a special treat, it has heart healthy oats and bittersweet chocolate (The cookies are sweet enough that you don't need milk chocolate or even semi-sweet chocolate).



  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
