Oatmeal Toll House Cookies

Who doesn’t love Nestle Toll House cookies?  We all do, but wouldn’t it be nice if they were a little healthier.  Well – Grandmother has done it!  She adds 2 cups of toasted oatmeal and a cup of toasted walnuts to the tollhouse cookie recipe.  The result is a dense delicious chocolate chip cookie with a hearty sweet goodness and a guilt-free feeling.  Ok – maybe not totally guilt-free. The addition of 2 cups of oatmeal adds 16 grams of fiber and 20 grams of protein.  The walnuts contribute 5 grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein.  Sounds like some good additions to me!

Toasting Oatmeal

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Butter a cookie sheet and evenly distribute 2 cups of oatmeal.  Bake for 10 minutes, stir the oatmeal and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Let cool before adding to your Tollhouse cookie dough.  I add the nuts and oatmeal right before the chocolate chips.
