Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my husband’s favorite. I wanted to make them for a special treat for the family, but knew that my old recipe would need some cleaning up. These cookies still have a fair amount of sugar, but they’re fine for one of our rare treats. These cookies are best baked only until the edges are brown and the centers are still soft and gooey.
