TWD – Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

Picture 194 copy

Oatmeal is something that I never really liked.

The texture was just all wrong, the cookies didn’t have illegal amounts of chocolate in them… oatmeal just wasn’t for me. I mean take a good long look at cooked oatmeal: it’s gloopy and smooshy and this odd cross between grey and brown. What about that was so enticing to grown ups, I never understood.

But now I’m an adult and my adult taste buds have apparently come in because I love oatmeal!! And sweet potatoes. And broccoli. Yep, even broccoli.

The name pretty much tells you all you need to know about these cookies and the oatmeal in them made me snap to attention. Ok, ok… the fact that ‘chocolate’ came first is what drew me… but I get points for making these anyway, right?

I expected these cookies to spread thinner than they did, almost like a chocolate chip cookie, but they stayed almost the same size and shape as their unbaked brethren. I also think that I baked them a bit too long as they were a tiny bit on the crumbly side. But nit-picking aside, these were delicious.

I, of course, had to up the amount of chocolate in these cookies so I added a few handfuls of chocolate chips. A perfect addition for the 5 year old with undeveloped taste buds in me. :)

  1. Oooh, yours stayed really thick – I like them like that! I didn’t love these even though I am a big fan of both chocolate and oatmeal. Better luck next week I guess :)
