Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Having oodles of little ones in our home, I am constantly in need of snacks and quick meals.  Being a Mom, I care that they eat [semi] healthy & wholesome food... which is not always so easy!  I have had to learn to modify recipes, eliminating unessasary ingredients and adding healthy alternatives to make food more healthy and 'kid-friendly.' 
While the little ones were napping today, I mixed up a batch of chocolate-chip cookies.  The main difference in this recipe than the normal, is the smaller amounts of sugar, butter, and using mostly whole wheat flour instead of white.  ~ I hope you and yours enjoy them as much as we did!


Mix:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon milk
3 eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 cup white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1 bag chocolate chips

 After mixing the ingredients, bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, at 350 degrees!

What are some of your tips for healthy cooking/ baking?
