CHEWY TASTY YUMMY (a lil healthy) Oatmeal ChocChip Cookies!

So while over at Angies last sunday she was baking oatmeal chocchip cookies! So when we got home that evening the boys decided ok we r done with chocchip peanut butter cookies! WE want chocchip oatmeal cookies! So i looked threw my mounds of recipes and came across an awesome recipe! And before u even attempt this recipe PLEASE make sure you have a big enough bowl to mix this in... This turns out to be ALOT of cookies! I ended up making 2 cookie jars full and putting the rest of the left over cookie dough in the freezer! Heres how they turned out! Recipe will be after the pics!

This is what was left of the cookie dough..

Cookies all done and getting ready to come out and cool off!

Very tasty and gooey and chewy when they first come out according to my son!

This is one of the cookie jars filled with these delish cookies!

And here is my son doing the taste test!

(this is the original recipe but i changed it!)

3 c. sifted flour
5 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 c. shortening
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. white sugar
4 eggs, unbeaten
2 tsp. hot water
4 c. oatmeal
2 tsp. vanilla
3 c. chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts

Sift flour, measure, add soda, salt and sift.
Cream shortening until fluffy.
Add sugars, cream well.
Beat in eggs, add hot water, and sifted ingredients.
Mix well. Add oatmeal, chocolate chips and nuts, if desired, and vanilla.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
For a healthier cookie, i used unsalted butter,
2 egg whites and 2 whole eggs and i used splenda sugar, both white and brown.
I also used less chocchips! i put 2 cups in :)
I also added 3 heaped tablespoons of ground flaxseed!

I love cooking with splenda and I've never tried flaxseed.

What exactly is it for? I know I'm so behind the times!
