Oaty Chocolate Cookies

The first time I made these back in August 2008 I used a leftover Easter bunny. This time I’ve used a chopped up block of Old Gold dark chocolate, since I no longer receive Easter chocolates! 

A relatively easy recipe to put together to fill up your cookie jar for the week ahead!

Servings 40


  • 150g unsalted butter, softened
  • 190g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 130g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 230g rolled oats
  • 180g dark chocolate, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 180°C, line three large baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy and smooth.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat till smooth.  
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix lightly. 
  • Add the oats and choc chips and stir to combine.
  • Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls and place on the baking trays.  Flatten the balls with a fork dipped in flour.  
  • Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until pale golden if you like them to be soft and chewy and longer if you like them with a bit of crunch.  
  • Remove from the oven and cool on trays for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

    LOL, your oat cookies look crunchy and delish, it caught even the bunny’s eyes;)
