I’ll never forget the time I put a batch of these cookies in the oven and then forgot all about them. They were black by the time I remembered they were cooking. I was in middle school at the time and just running around the neighborhood playing when I remembered. Oops! I’m so glad I didn’t burn down the house.
I have a lot of memories of making cookies. It was one thing my mom let us do and experiment with quite often. I think it’s time to bring cookie baking back into my life. I’m pretty sure my kids wont be upset about it. It’s about time I got all my favorites up on the blog and in Mufitnesspal for easy macro tracking.

I’ve actually fit one into my macros every night this week along with my bowl of low fat cottage cheese. The macros on them are great for a cookie in my opinion. Only 22.8 carbs, 6.3 fat, and 2.2 protein. Jackpot!
This oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe is the original Mrs. Field’s recipe. I grew up eating and making these often. My mom was known for her cookie baking skills so we got to reap the benefits of them often. I figure if I’m going to put a legit cookie recipe on our site, I might as well start with this one that doesn’t seem so heavy on the macro budget. I mean they’re made with oatmeal, that’s a healthy bonus, right?
My mom taught me what I think is the most important trick to making a good cookie. DO NOT over cook them. In fact, pull them out sooner than you think. There’s nothing better than bitting into a cookie that is chewy on the inside. If you cook them all the way through, you’ll be sad.
