Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Heather says:
If you just can’t decide whether to make oatmeal or chocolate chip cookies this is the joyful union of both. These are a little chewy, a little soft, and a whole lot of chocolate.

Ingredients:

 

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt (unless you use salted butter, then reduce to 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • cooking spray

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease your baking sheet. 

In a bowl combine the flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Briefly stir with a fork or whisk to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Set this aside for a moment.

In a mixing bowl place the softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Mix until smooth. In a measuring cup slightly beat the egg with the two teaspoons vanilla extract. Add to the butter and sugar and mix until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, be sure to scrape the side and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.

Once the dry ingredients are incorporated stir in the rolled oats and chocolate chips, mix by hand until evenly distributed.

Use two tablespoons or a cookie scoop to drop onto the greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes at 350°F, then allow to cool on the sheet for an additional five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy.

    I doubled the recipe and made them day before yesterday – they are WONDERFUL!

    Moist, chewy, almost a brownie in cookie form.

    Hubs sat with a large glass of ice cold milk and snarfed up about a dozen in one sitting. (He’s one of those lucky twits who never gains weight)

    Thanks for the recipe,this one is definitely a keeper.

    The chocolate oatmeal cookies are really good, but I added peanut butter chips instead. These cookies are perfect for the taste of peanut butter chips!

    Tara, supposedly 3 dozen, but I’m always generous with the size of my cookies and the yield is closer to 2 dozen.
