Simple Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Mmm... Chocolate!

Who are we kidding? Chocolate is heavenly. Oatmeal adds a nice crunchy texture to the typical chocolate chip cookie, a bit of added health benefits, and a change of pace for hardcore chocolatiers. Below is a relatively quick recipe for making double chocolate oatmeal cookies!

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe is an older one, but is still oh-so-good! Simple to make - and even easier to eat, Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are above average and full of chocolate!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup whole-wheat (pastry) flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar or 1/3 cup stevia
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons (vegetable) oil
  • 1 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or more!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the applesauce and oil, while continuing to stir until completely mixed together. Add the chocolate chips and walnuts as desired.
  • Use a lightly-oiled baking sheet. Place batter balls about one teaspoon in size, about one inch apart from each other.
  • Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes (10 minutes for softer cookies, 12 for crispier cookies).
  • Cool for a couple of minutes. Then, serve.

You could ice the cookies with frosting or melted chocolate, and add a few sprinkles of oatmeal on top!
