7*52 Chocolate-Oat-Cookies

Yes, I know... Valentine's Day was 3 days ago.
But there was and is no sign of it here on this blog. Let me explain:

I was planning on baking and posting something pink and heart-shaped before Valentine's Day.
But then I got the flu and I just couldn't bake or taste (or do pretty much anything else for that matter). And while I do feel better today, I really couldn't bake anything complicated or time-consuming.

So this is the point where we just pretend that we didn't even know about Valentine's Day and feel totally excited about simple, fast, straightforward Chocolate-Oat-Cookies. Okay?

Adapted from Green Gourmet

Makes 20 big or 40 small cookies

100 g chocolate chips
60 g butter
120 g oats
30 g flour
1 egg
50 g sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Melt butter, mix with oats. Combine with remaining ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Using 2 teaspoons (or your hand), form balls, put them on the prepared baking sheet and flatten them a bit. 
  • Bake for 9-12 minutes (depending on the size of the cookies).
My modifications:
I added the cinnamon to the original recipe. I just thought it would add a nice flavor.

The taste:
Well, as I said above, I can't taste that much right now. But what I did taste was good (and very chocolaty). The hubby agreed.

What is your quick & easy go-to baking recipe?
