I love cookies. I have serious, serious love for cookies these days.

Yes, even after the holiday cookie comas — they’re still one of my favorite treats! I love how easy they are to whip up and how easy they are to store and save when you go a little crazy and make 8 dozen one day. (Not that I know what that’s like).

I also have a thing for oats.

Mushy, overcooked oatmeal? Not so much. But I love their chewy texture and how they fill you up so easily. So while these are not necessarily healthy enough for breakfast, the oats do add a good amount of protein and fiber and it might be able to help you resist that fourth or fifth cookie…. or it might not. Because they are so good!

The dough is going to be a little on the sticky side, but don’t worry! This makes the cookies so moist and chewy because they don’t puff up as much as normal oatmeal cookies.

Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

These Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are packed with chocolate and chewy oats -- they make the perfect snack or easy treat and freeze beautifully!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 large Eggland's Best egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat or all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugars until smooth and creamy. Add the egg, vanilla and milk and beat until smooth.
  3. Add the cocoa, flour and oats and mix just until combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips. The dough will still be slightly sticky.
  4. Spoon rounded tablespoonfuls of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets and press down slightly. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes, until just slightly glossy in the center (just a little!) but mostly set. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

      I do not have WW information for this recipe- but you could plug in the ingredients to the WW recipe builder to find out. This one is not designed to be WW friendly though- it’s just a regular cookie recipe.
