Healthier Soft Oatmeal Cookies

My family loves these oatmeal cookies, and with my made-over version, they are a great way to sneak extra fiber and grains into their diet! I reduce the sugar, add whole wheat, use rolled oats and add dates (for extra fiber!)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup diced, pitted dates

  • 3 cups rolled oats

Directions

  1. Beat butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla extract. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a separate bowl; stir into butter mixture. Fold in oats and dates. Cover and chill dough for at least one hour.

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two baking sheets.

  3. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
