Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

February 17, 2018
Soft-and-chewy Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies get their triple chocolate yumminess from the trio of cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips.  They're a family favorite cookie, for sure.

Chocolate makes me happy.  Triple chocolate makes me even happier.  And 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 can at least make me feel like I'm getting a teeny-tiny bit of nutrition when I stuff my face with three or four of them enjoy them.

These soft and chewy Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are one of my absolute favorite cookies.  Ever.

Yes, 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 chocolate way, just because I'm using what's already in the pantry {also known as ... I'm too lazy to make a run to the grocery store to get whatever "flavor" of chocolate chips I'm out of}.

The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy, with a little bit of texture from the oats.

To ensure their softness, scoop them a little bit on the large side when you're prepping them for the baking sheet.  I use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop and let the dough generously spill out over the top and around the edges.  Also, be sure to not overbake them.  I actually take my cookies out of the oven when they're still a touch on the underbaked side.

Triple or double chocolate ... whatever way you choose to make them ... these cookies are simply delicious.  Oh, and a little birdie {that closely resembles my hubby} tells me they're simply delicious for breakfast with a big glass of milk.  Hey ... they do have oatmeal in them, right?

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!

  13. I am looking to amplify this method into my closet world. to date, i've placed red shoelaces in my Nikes. If someone professional in developing a hundred clothing with three articles of apparel wanted to teach me, i might pay them in cookies. basically because i am saving money for furniture. however Pro-Homework-Help additionally due to the fact I suppose i have the hold of fancifying things inside the kitchen.
