Whole grain Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my "healthier" version of Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies that I've been making for years. My husband doesn't even know (don't tell him!) If you want to make it less healthy replace with the ingredients in the parentheses.

Cream together:
1 c. butter
1 c. evaporated cane juice (white sugar)
1 c. sucanat or rapadura (brown sugar)

2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBS milk

Mix in:
1-1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour (white flour and omit milk)
1/2 c. white flour
2-1/2 c. blended oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

2 c. chocolate chips

Roll in 1" balls, bake at 375 for 10 minutes. This does make a lot of cookies, I freeze the balls.
