Nutritious Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you like to have fun with your food? We like to play with our orange slices. Sloan and Chauncey have been doing this since they were little!

Can a chocolate chip cookie really be nutritious? Hmm, lets see, the oatmeal is good, eggs are good, I added wheat germ, that's good, but I'm not so sure about the rest of the ingredients. There is still a lot of butter and sugar in these cookies, but hey, that's what makes them good! These are nice and moist, and everyone loved them! I didn't even tell them that they are suppose to be nutritious! Sloan won't eat a cookie once she finds out it has oatmeal in it. Even if she has enjoyed most of the cookie, she'll quit eating it if you tell her there is oatmeal in it! She's only 11, so I'm hoping she'll grow out of it! Everyone enjoyed eating these while we played Killer Bunnies. If you've never played it, it's a really fun game!

Nutritious Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
2 cups quick oats
2 cups chocolate chips

Optional Ingredients (use 1 or more of the following)

1 cup peanut butter
1 cup wheat germ (I only had 1/2 cup, so I added it)
1 cup flaked coconut (I added this)
1 cup dry milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl whisk the flour, oatmeal and soda.

In a mixer beat the butter and brown sugar for 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and mix well. Beat in the extra ingredients and the chocolate chips. Drop with a cookie scoop onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

They say you shouldn't play with your food, but no one really gets hurt and you eat it anyways!
