Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Hello people! Let's strart the month with something healthy. my choice goes to oatmeals. Simply because oatmeal is good to maintain blood sugar, which is good for diabetes people. So my mom can eat cookies without worrying about sugar-too sweet and so on. 
Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal
I want my cookies to be crunchy crispy outside and the inside. I found interesting article titled cookie chemistry. Wow the science behind the cookie makes me feels like scientist. First, the article says about sugar that is known as hygroscopic, it takes up water, and the most less hygroscopic type of sugar is granulated sugar. in the other hand the brown sugar is more hygroscopic, so i omit the brown sugar and go to granulated sugar only.The second is butter, butter will melt at lower temperature. that means, the dough will spread wider. With those two secret, the cookies will end the crispy, crunchier texture. Loovvee it.

Well what about the taste now. the cookies taste really good, not too sweet, with the more crunchy given by oatmeal and the hint of chocolate chips! but My mom suggested me to reduce the sugar lil bit more. I'll do it next time mom :)
