Sigs chocolate chip cookies

These are part of my own "thrive diet", not approved by the actual Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier.  I love baking and chocolate chip cookies are a must for me.  So I make them as healthy as I can.  Everything in moderation right?  Okay, SOME things in moderation....

3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 unsalted butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

Grind oats to a powder.  Whisk them in a bowl with the flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a different bowl, beat butter, oil, sugars, egg and vanilla.  Incorporate the dry ingredients until just combined.  Stir in chocolate chips. 
Teaspoon onto parchment paper lined baking sheets.  Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes.  Move cookies to a wire rack to cool. 

Tip:  Don't layer the baking sheets in the oven.  They don't cook properly if you do.  If you can fit two baking sheets on one oven rack, fine.  Otherwise, cook one sheet at a time.
