Just what the world needs....

Another Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe! Well the world is getting another anyway!

The girls requested chocolate chip cookies this morning. I said yes before I looked to make sure I had ingredients for any of the recipes I had for them. I looked and, Nope, so I had to make up another. This one is soy free as I had no margarine, or soy milk, and has brown sugar instead of white as I had none, it also has some oatmeal, as I used all my flour (and I only had plain) and the mix was still too wet.

The resulting cookies are on the large side, soft, yet a little chewy, and nice with a cool glass of chocolate soymilk (after I went to the store and restocked my kitchen somewhat!!). Enjoy, and happy Canada Day – photos tomorrow!

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 16

⅓ Cup Canola Oil
⅓ Cup light Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
½ teaspoon ground Chia Seeds

⅓ Cup quick cooking Rolled Oats
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Baking Soda

⅔ Cup Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375°F, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mix together the oil through chia seeds. Beat for 2 minutes until shiny and stand for a further 5 minutes.
Add the flour, oats, salt, and baking soda. Mix to just combine.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
