Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookes


I had an old recipe for chocolate oat cookies, and so I decided to turn that into triple chocolate oatmeal cookies!

Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 1/2cup softened butter (half a cup equals one stick)
  • 1/2cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4cup oats (not instant!)
  • 3/4cup all-purpose flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/4tsp salt
Steps:
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Melt one cup of semisweet chocolate chips in a double boiler on low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat when all chips are melted completely.
  3. Beat sugar and butter with an electric mixer until fuffy.
  4. Add in melted chocolate, vanilla, and egg until well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Add oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  6. Stir in 1cup of semisweet chocolate chips and 1 cup white chocolate chips.
  7. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  8. Bake 8-10 minutes until edges look set. 
  9. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 5 minutes and enjoy!
This recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.

Additional notes:
  • These cookies are super gooey, but the longer you let them set, the firmer they will become.
  • If you are a nut lover, add a 1/2cup of walnuts or pecans!
