Decadent, rich chocolate oat cookies…

Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside!

I just love a good oat cookie and sometimes I need one with all the good stuff like butter and sugar. This recipe is just it. I couldn’t let them cool once they came out of the oven, they were just so good!

Ingredients in dark chocolate oat cookies

I wouldn’t suggest changing anything in this recipe, keep the ingredients and measurements the same and you won’t be disappointed.

Use regular all-purpose flour for best results. I haven't tested other flours yet but if you do, feel free to leave a comment below!

Use brown sugar or coconut sugar and regular granulated sugar for this recipe.

Use baking soda and a cup of regular rolled oats.

Any chocolate can be used for this recipe, I decided to use dark chocolate.

Use 2 regular-sized eggs for best results.

NOTE ** I have not tried to make these without refrigerating first, the longer they sit in the fridge the better the outcome, but 30 minutes is enough to achieve good results.
