Chocolate Goodness

I've been so busy with school and work lately I have absolutely no free time. When I saw this recipe from Baking Blonde, I knew I had to make it soon. It was the perfect break from studying. The texture is a little different than a 'regular' cookie. It reminds me of a cake cookie. Anyway though, they are delicious!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup + 2 TBS flour
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder (I increased this to 1/4 cup as suggested)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups Oatmeal
1/2 cup Milk chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly spray baking sheets with PAM. (I used parchment paper)

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

Gently mix in the flour mixture by hand using a spoon or spatula. Gently fold in the oats and chips (and nuts if using).

Drop by spoonfuls (I used my trusty PC 1in cookie scoop - I had to flatten the cookies out a bit) onto cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between cookies for spreading.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until edges are set. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container (with a piece of bread to keep soft).

MMM Those look so tastey! When I made them they did not last long around here and the neighbor kids loved them! They would be great with M&M's as well!
