Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are great chewy cookies with a lot of flavor. Using egg whites, only 1/4 cup of margarine, and mini-chocolate chips makes these a lighter option, but you will not sacrifice flavor. They do not spread, so make sure you shape them how you prefer before baking. I preferred the thicker cookies.

1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 granulated sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup mini-chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg whites and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. When it is fully incorporated, mix in the rolled oats and mini-chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon-fulls onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. 
Makes 18 cookies.
