1/4 C. unsalted butter, softened

1/4 C. canola oil

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 C. chocolate chips (I used 1/2 C. Reeses Pieces and 1/2 C. sugar free chocolate chips)


1.  Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray

2. Grind oats in a blender or food processor until fine. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter in a large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy. Add oil, sugars, egg and vanilla; beat until smooth and creamy. With the mixer running, add the dry ingredients, beating on low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
