Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

by Charlotte Siems

Warm, chewy, chocolate-y cookies. Just the thing for an afternoon snack with a glass of milk or cup of coffee on a chilly afternoon. Tastes like a brownie. The recipe originally came from an old favorite cookbook, but we adapted it to use less sugar.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups oats

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy; blend in eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in oats (batter will be stiff). Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 11-12 minutes or until set; cookies will be slightly moist in center. Do NOT overbake! Cool one minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack, cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.

  1. You know, I just love that you still post good, yummy recipes and don’t pretend that you never eat anything that’s not perfectly healthy! It’s encouraging to me–makes weight loss seem realistic and do-able, rather than a life sentence to boring food. 🙂

  2. These are very tasty. My advice would be to flatten your dough balls before you bake them as they don’t tend to spread out much in the oven.
