I could probably be labeled “oatmeal addicted” and tonight I wanted a cookie. SO, I experimented…
Flourless Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
1/3 cup butter
1.5 c. old fashion oats
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1 t Vanilla extract
1 tbsp cocoa powder
splash of milk (soy or almond works too)
Melt the butter and set aside to cool. Place oats in a medium-sized bowl. Stir in brown sugar and cocoa and blend to break up any lumps.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, vanilla, milk and egg. Stir this into the oat mixture, mixing with a large wooden spoon to work in the ingredients.
Chill the dough 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Meanwhile, spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray. Form the chilled dough into 1-inch balls and flatten down very slightly on the baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 17 minutes or until the edges are nicely browned. Cool well on the baking sheet (about 10 minutes) before attempting to remove, using a spatula.
I plan to enjoy a few with PB and a container of soy vanilla yogurt in just a bit :-). Enjoy!
PS: these will be good with some java in the AM too 🙂
