chocolate oatmeal drops

Chocolate cookies, yay! Oatmeal cookies, boo.

No creaming of butter, boo. Brownie mixing method, yay!

Bit of spreading around the edges, boo. Delicious chewy brownie cookies with bits of oatmeal, yay!

Caroline and Claire chose these cookies for Tuesdays with Dorie, and they have the recipe posted. I increased the salt, replaced the water with vanilla, and left out the cinnamon.

Okay, now my next extry will be a chocolate frosting comparison. Pinky swear.


  1. We’re all waiting on the edges of our seat for that chocolate frosting comparison!

  2. Pretty pictures of the cookies, that’s for sure!

  3. Thanks for baking along with us this week. Your cookies look delicious!

  4. These look yummy! Reminds me of a no-bake cookie.

  5. Yum they look so chocolatey and moist! Im glad you ended up liking them! I thought they were good..didn’t last long at my house!

  6. Just put these in the oven. I knew I should have checked here before whipping them up – vanilla in place of water is genius. *sigh* Oh well, next time.

    Stafany – I’ve always wondered why Dorie calls for water instead of vanilla. I suppose she must have her reasons because it isn’t like it didn’t occur to her to use vanilla, right?!
