Chocolaty chocolate chip oatmeal cookies


This recipe is one of those happy accidents. I sometimes bake in the early morning to make sure my kids have snacks for their lunches. One sleepy morning I was making my regular tahini oatmeal cookies but decided to add cocoa powder, then accidentally doubled the rolled oats. The result was a wholesome chocolaty cookie. With so many oats these cookies are surprisingly filling.

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ t baking soda
  • ½ t salt
  • 1/3 – ½ cup cocoa
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soft butter
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Mash the butter with the sugar until well combined. Stir in the oil and tahini. When well mixed beat in the egg and the vanilla.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, oats, baking soda and salt.

Combine dry with wet and stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes (don’t let them bake too long).
