MoFo 2: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

So the one thing I can't keep in the kitchen is chocolate...chocolate cookies, chocolate bars, chocolate chips, chocolate anything. BandMan is all about the sweets and chocolate is his drug of choice.

So I don't keep my chocolate in the kitchen; no in fact, I keep my chocolate in a very special, super secret, hiding place elsewhere in the house. I can't specify where, as he is likely to read this, but I can guarantee there's a little bit of shock and possible disappointment showing on his face that I would hide something like this from him..."You mean you've had chocolate this whole time, woman!"

Anyway, cookies and stuff.

Makes 12 large cookies, or 18 lil' cuties like this.

These guys are super easy to make and that's always a plus for me because I have to quickly throw anything with chocolate together and get the ingredients back to their very special, super secret, hiding place elsewhere in the house, undetected.

So try these little ninja cookies out.

3/4 c whole wheat flour
1/4 c oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1/2 c applesauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  1. Preheat that oven to 350
  2. Combine the flour, oats, baking powder and soda, sugar, and flax in a bowl. 
  3. Add the applesauce and oil and give her a good stirring. 
  4. Ever so lightly, stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts. 
  5. Using a cute little spoon drop the batter in to little mounds on your cookie sheet. Bake 'em for 10-15 minutes (depends on how burnt you want them.)
  6. Try to let them cool for a minute or two before you dig in. Also, they still taste good when your taste buds are burnt off.


  1. How did you know that I have a stash of vegan chips in my pantry and that I'm craving chocolate today?? Perfect! Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I'm working on getting my masters in mind-reading :)

  2. I know what you mean about hiding chocolate. During my childhood, if there was chocolate in the fridge my mom would find it. Didn't matter whose it was--she would eat it. She always said that she "couldn't help it." Uh-huh.

    Great-looking cookies, great post!

    1. Thanks, Emily! They sure didn't last long once BandMan found out where I hid the finished product :)
