EPICURIOUS DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES WITH STEEL CUT OATS*
Makes 12 Cookies – they go fast so we recommend doubling the recipe! *Rolled oats can be substituted for a chewier, tender cookie.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons steel-cut oats
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter large rimmed baking sheet. Sift first 4 ingredients into medium bowl. Using stand mixer or handheld mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy.
Add sugar and vanilla; beat until well blended. Add flour mixture, a little at a time, and beat until moist clumps form. Mix in oats with spatula or in stand mixer until evenly distributed (dough will be very firm). Add chocolate chips and mix in gently to blend.
Using moistened palms, shape 1 generous tablespoon of dough into a ball. Place on prepared baking sheet; flatten to 2-inch round. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing rounds about 2 inches apart.
Bake cookies until center is slightly firm and top is cracked, about 14 minutes. Cool on sheet. Enjoy!!!!!
