Lite Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate chips, walnuts, and oats give these cookies a chewy and crunchy texture. They use less sugar than many traditional chocolate-chip cookies, but have plenty of rich sweetness thanks to the combination of brown sugar, dark honey, and cocoa powder. The latter two ingredients also provide a dose of minerals, including zinc and iron.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. In the bowl of an electric mixer or in a mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and honey. Beat on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat on low speed to blend well. In another bowl, add the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Stir until well combined. Add to the wet mixture. Stir in the oats, chocolate, and nuts. Spoon the batter in 1 tablespoon mounds onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until set to the touch.
