Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's another easy recipe that the family will love.

I am a snacker and especially at night time when the kids are asleep, which of course is not good for the bum bum and other bits...
But I can't be an angel all the time!
These cookies are slightly tweaked from Half Baked Harvest
Very nice website with yummy recipes, I've been following them on Pinterest.

Try them out. Less sugar, healthier and leaner on the bum bum and other bits.

Preheat Oven to 180 degrees c

2 1/2 cups Old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 cup Wholemeal flour
1/2 cup Granulated sugar
1 cup Fine, soft Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup melted coconut oil (use a little more if dough seems dry)
2 large eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet or unsweetened dark chocolate chips or chocolate chunks


 Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
In a large, mixing bowl add the dry ingredients first; Oatmeal, flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt. Mix with a spatula.
In another bowl, mix coconut oil, eggs and vanilla.
 Combine all the ingredients. 
The dough should be crumbly. Mix in the chocolate chips.
Using hands, clump together a tablespoon of dough. Slightly damp hands help 'un-stick' the batter that could get stuck on your hands. Form balls of dough.
  Place on prepared baking sheet. If your balls are a little crumbly do not worry, they will come together while baking. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until set and golden.
