“I can't believe that this recipe would be called HEALTHY! I made this cookie and it is now my husbands all time favorite cookie. I love it too. I found it in Prevention Magazine and I am posting it here so that I will never lose it! I usually either use mini chocolate chips or peanut butter chips. Yum!”
16 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl. Whisk together oil, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in large bowl.
  2. Whisk in egg whites and vanilla until smooth. Stir in dry ingredients until blended. Fold in oats and then chocolate.
  3. Cover and chill dough at least 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Shape dough into 16 balls (1/4 scant cup each) with hands, using a little pressure.
  5. Place 8 balls on each prepared sheet. With fingers, press each into a patty about 3" in diameter, allowing about 2" between patties for slight spreading.
  6. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until desired brownness (do not overbake), switching position of sheets halfway through.
  7. Let cool a few minutes before moving to rack to cool completely.
  8. My own note: the dough on this is not like your typical cookie dough. You will think something is wrong with it because it will crumble and fall apart and kind of look greasy. But just squeeze them together into palm size balls and you will get lovely big puffy cookies! Make sure there is plenty of space for them to expand!
