Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

This week Caroline and Claire of Bake With Us chose Dorie's Chocolate Oatmeal Drops. I really love this sort of cookie. There's no creaming butter, you don't have to wait for the dough to chill and you don't have to roll them out. Just melt, mix, drop, bake and eat!

I made just 1/4 of the recipe and got 10 large cookies. They disappeared in record time so I will definitely have to make another batch sometime soon. Next time I will leave a little more space between them on the tray though, these spread like crazy.

The taste test ...

I don't think I've ever really had oats in a chocolate cookie before but it was delicious. I upped the wholegrain aspect by using wholemeal flour which made me feel a bit better about scoffing down 3 of them for lunch! These were really tasty everyday cookies and I will be making them again.

Make sure you check out Bake With Us for the recipe as well as the other TWD bakers here.

  13. I remember eating oatmeal chocolate cookies a long time ago and I remember I absolutely loved them. But I guess I just forgot about them. Now, I have to thank you for reminding me of them. I’ll definitely go make some really soon. They look awesome.
