Chocolate Chip Cookies

       As a Father's Day treat, our daughter stopped in for a short visit and made a batch of cookies for her dad. Adapted from The New Laurel's Kitchen by Laurel Robertson, they go something like this:

  • 1 c. canola oil
  • 1 1/2 c. organic sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1 c. toasted wheat germ
  • 2 c. rolled oats
  • 2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 c. chopped walnuts
      Preheat to 375'. Mix vigorously oil and sugar till smooth. Add egg, vanilla, and salt. Beat well.

      Stir flour, baking powder, wheat germ and rolled oats together with a fork. Blend well with other ingredients, adding a tablespoon or more of water to hold batter together if necessary. Place by tablespoonful on greased cookie sheets. Flatten them a bit with fork or fingers. Bake for 10 to 12". Makes 48.
