Nestle Tollhouse Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is Nestle's "healthy" version of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. Now, I know they have a test kitchen so I don't get how exactly they messed up on the flour measurements. Let me show you what I mean.

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (If you want flat cookies, use their amount of flour. If you don't add 2 1/4 cups of flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) OPTIONAL


  1. PREHEAT oven to 375° F. Grease baking sheets.

  2. COMBINE flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl.

  3. Beat brown sugar, granulated sugar, margarine and applesauce in large mixer bowl until smooth.

  4. Beat in egg whites and vanilla extract.

  5. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats, morsels and nuts; mix well.

  6. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies or 12 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies.
