Oatmeal cookies

Makes about 4 dozen cookies


  • 3/4 cup soft margarine
  • 1 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1.5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup oat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • chocolate chips


Cream together the margarine and sugar until light and creamy.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.

Combine the flour, rolled oats, oat bran, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.  Stir into the creamed mixture and mix well.  Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop the dough in flattened teaspoonfuls onto a lightly oiled or paper-lined cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly with a floured fork.

Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  After taking cookies out of the oven wait one minute before removing cookies from the pan.
