I was craving for sweets the other day and since I cannot eat oatmeal solo, I always incorporate it in some other recipes that need a cup or two of rolled oats. I have to source the net to find something simple to make and I came up with this recipe. It was moist and yummy though but I told Josef it is better baked as bars than cookies. Will try it some other time.
And these are the ingredients which as usual, I tweaked a bit. I don’t really dig sweet cookies so I always lessen the sugar. These are the original ingredients though, it’s up to you to adjust everything if you want to try it.
You will need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips ( I omitted this)
Preheat oven to 375 °F or 175 °C. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together flour, cocoa, rolled oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients using a hand mixer. Spoon into the greased cookie sheet leaving at least two inches in between cookies. Bake for about 10 minutes. Let cool.
