This recipe is very easy and fast to make. It calls for
1 Cup of All-Purpose Flour( gluten free can be used if needed)
1/2 cup granulated sugar or 1 cup of confectioners sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar- Dark Brown Sugar has more molasses and makes the cookies sweeter. I use both depending on my mood.
3 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup of butter or coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup of rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
Pre-Heat the Oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
In a separate large bowl cream together the butter/coconut oil, brown sugar, and white sugar. If using butter, pop it in the microwave for a few seconds to help it mix better with the sugars. I also use a hand mixer to cream these ingredients. After these 3 ingredients have been mixed together, stir in the egg and vanilla extract. Stir in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon. Mix in the chocolate chips and rolled oats. Use a spoon or tablespoon to drop the dough onto the cookie sheet about 1.5 inches apart. Place the cookies in the oven for 8 – 10 minutes.
The end result in delicious energy packed chocolate oatmeal cookies!
