- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt (unless you use salted butter, then reduce to 1/4 tsp)
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease your baking sheet.
In a bowl combine the flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Briefly stir with a fork or whisk to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed. Set this aside for a moment.
In a mixing bowl place the softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Mix until smooth. In a measuring cup slightly beat the egg with the two teaspoons vanilla extract. Add to the butter and sugar and mix until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined, be sure to scrape the side and bottom of the bowl with a spatula.
Once the dry ingredients are incorporated stir in the rolled oats and chocolate chips, mix by hand until evenly distributed.
Use two tablespoons or a cookie scoop to drop onto the greased baking sheet. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes at 350°F, then allow to cool on the sheet for an additional five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
