Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate makes me happy.  Triple chocolate makes me even happier.  Put triple chocolate in cookie form? ... I'm in cookie heaven.  And including a little whole-grain oats makes them healthy, right?  Okay, so maybe not so much with that last part ...

... but hey, oatmeal in my cookies makes me feel like I'm getting at least a teeny-tiny bit of nutrition when I stuff my face with three or four of them enjoy them.

And these soft-and-chewy Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are one of my absolute favorite cookies.  Ever.  Yup, with three kinds of chocolate stuffed in them, how could a chocolate lover {like me!} not love them?  They get their triple chocolate yumminess from the trio of cocoa powder, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips.

But if you'd rather have Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies instead, you could simply use all semi-sweet chocolate chips, or all milk chocolate chips.  Quite frequently I make them the 'double way,' just because I'm using what's already in the pantry {aka ... I'm too lazy to make a run to the grocery store to get whatever 'flavor' of chocolate chips I'm out of}.

Oatmeal Cookies

Triple or double ... whatever way you make them ... these cookies are simply delicious.  Oh, and a little birdie {that would be my hubby} tells me they're simply delicious for breakfast.  Hey ... they do have oatmeal, right?

Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Source:  Adapted from an old family recipe


Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 c. milk chocolate chips
Directions
  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a larger mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat at medium speed until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
  3. Stir in the oats, and then the chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes (they will still look a bit uncooked in the middle). Let stand on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing from the pan.
Enjoy!
