Low Fat and Low Calorie Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low Fat and Low Calorie Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yesterday I brought these cookies to my husband's friend's bonfire, they disappeared quickly. Everyone loved them. Tahini actually tasted delicious in these cookies! Will be making these sweets again.















2 cups rolled oats
not quick-cooking
½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup tahini (sesame paste)
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
cold, cut into pieces
cup sugar
cup brown sugar, light
1 large eggs
1 large egg whites
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
semisweet or bittersweet
½ cup walnuts


Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 350°F.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk oats, whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

Beat tahini and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until blended into a paste.

Add granulated sugar and brown sugar; continue beating until well combined—the mixture will still be a little grainy.

Beat in egg, then egg white, then vanilla.

Stir in the oat mixture with a wooden spoon until just moistened.

Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.

With damp hands, roll 1 tablespoon of the batter into a ball, place it on a prepared baking sheet and flatten it until squat, but don’t let the sides crack.

Continue with the remaining batter, spacing the flattened balls 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 16 minutes, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through.

Cool on the pans for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Let the pans cool for a few minutes before baking another batch.

Tasty cookies! If you are going to eat cookies, at least with these you feel full after one or two, and they are not totally empty calories. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
It is not a perfect recipe for us, the cookies came out very hard (we like chewey) and the dough didn't stick together so I couldn't get a nice round shape. It's likely I caused the problems with modifications I made (I used Joy of Baking Instructions for modifying all purpose flour to pastry flour with cornstarch). I also substituted Splenda for Baking for the sugar, which is only half the volume of sugar. I will try these again, because we like the taste, but any advise on how to make them moister, chewier or keep the dough together given the modifications i have to make would be great.

They are wonderful, I found this recipe two days ago here, I made these cookies yesterday, and they look beautiful and very tasty, I used a little bit more sugar, and the cookies are crispy and golden brown, I will make them again at Christmas.

69 calories for one little cookie and it's considered low calorie and low fat?! They may be delicious but these cookies are high in calories and fat. No wonder Americans are so overweight!

2 grams of fat per serving seems pretty low for a cookie like this! I noticed the recipe only uses 4 tablespoons of butter in total! Seems like Mr. Mediterranean has an axe to grind with the yanks. Check out the fat in baklava to compare!
