Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
from Chocolate Never Faileth by Annette Lyon pg 46
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/4 cup oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and vanilla, mix. Mix in flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon until combined. Add the oats, mix until moistened. Stir in chocolate chips. Shape, either by dropping onto baking sheet by spoonfuls, or do what I like to do, use a small ice cream scoop, the kind with the handle on the side. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes. When they come out, they are still quite soft, so allow them to sit on the baking sheet for another 10 minutes, this kind of finishes the baking process. Let cookies completely cool on wire racks.
This recipe only makes about 1 1/2 dozen, but I always double it when I make it, because 1 1/2 dozen cookies get eaten really fast! This recipe has become my go-to cookie recipe, it's really quick to put together and bake and they are super yummy!
