I haven’t posted a cookie recipe lately because it seems like my family is always requesting the same old chocolate chip cookies week after week after week. I thought it was about time I broke them of their staid and complacent attitudes. This Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie recipe did the trick and it passed their stringent scrutiny with flying colors. Whew!
Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup margarine (I used butter)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients using a wooden spoon. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
