These dark chocolate oatmeal cookies are made with oats, whole-wheat flour and deliciously dark chocolate in 3 different forms. Very fudgy and almost like a brownie in the form of a cookie!
Dunk them in hot milk for breakfast, or snack on them in between meals, or heat them just a little and enjoy them warm for dessert. The cookie dough is made with half oats and half whole-wheat flour, giving a nice amount of oats in each bite, and adding a good, healthy crunch to the soft cookies.
Most oats cookies in the market have just a tiny bit oats and mostly just plain white flour and processed sugar. I hate to buy them and I feel bad when they are marketed as “healthy oatmeal cookies” when oats are less than 5% of the cookie. Using a mix of oats, whole-wheat flour, and unprocessed brown sugar, these cookies are healthy and perfect for gifting in the holiday season.
Don’t you think homemade and handmade gifts are the best? Let me know what gifts are you planning?
Happy Cooking. Happy Eating.
