Sherry's Story

This is a wonderfully simple cookie with all the goodness of oatmeal and real butter. For the best results, mix the dough and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before baking. Press the dough down before baking if you want a traditional looking cookie--these do not spread. Also, these cookies taste amazing after they have completely cooled. I notice that immediately after baking, I can taste the baking soda in these, but after several hours that's not the case. I think it is the Splenda that is used. When I took these to work I let everyone know there was no flour and no white sugar and was told they never would have known by the taste. You could also just use one or the other type of chocolate chip, but mixing the two definitely enhances the flavor.

2 1/2 c
old fashioned rolled oats put through food processor (resembles cornmeal--should take about 3 1/4 to 3 3/4 rolled oats(

For this one, I used regular Splenda, not the blend. :)

Did you use regular Splenda or the Baking Splenda (half sugar/half Splenda)?

Baking with Splenda definitely yields different results. A tip to make all chocolate chip cookies better, no matter the recipe, is to let the cookie dough sit in the refrigerator for at least one day (but two is better). Good luck!

I've never baked with Splenda but this looks like a good recipe to start with. Definitely healthier without the white sugar and white flour. Thanks for the recipe.
