Better for You Steel Cut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is actually take 2.... I decided to make some cookies that were a little better for us and wanted to use up some steel cut oats. The first batch just were not right: too cakey, not sweet enough, too much cinnamon, and kind of just weird lumps of cooked oatmeal..... I added back a little of the good stuff, more sugar, and used chocolate for the mixin and they are delish! Just a warning they will bake just as you drop them, so don't be surprised when they dont spread/flatten like an all butter/sugar cookie.

1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c splenda
2 eggs
1/2 c applesauce
1/2 c butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole grain flour
1 c Steel cut Oats
1 c regular oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Mix butter, applesauce, eggs, vanilla and sugars together in bowl to dissolve sugar.

Add dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheets and bake 10-12 minutes.
