Dorie’s Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Dorie did it again! I made her Chocolate Oatmeal Drops from Baking From My Home to Yours and they were fabulous! This cookie has cocoa and bittersweet chocolate, so if you are a chocolate lover, this is the cookie for you! They are similar in taste to a brownie but the texture is crisp and chewy, due to the oatmeal and brown sugar. The center of the cookies are soft and rich! Grab a glass of milk and enjoy!

Mixing away! I didn’t even need my Kitchenaid for this one!

I love my Silpats!

Right out of the oven! YUM!

Makes about 50 cookies
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
½ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 sticks (8oz) butter
1 Tb. water
1 ½ cups packed light brown sugar
9 oz. bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 large eggs
1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350.
Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and cinnamon.
Set a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Put the butter in the bowl and add the water, then the brown sugar and the chocolate. Melt on low heat, stirring occasionally. Don’t let the ingredients get too hot, the mixture will remain grainy.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the eggs, one at a time. Whisk in the dry ingredients, then the oats. Do not stir too much.
Drop by tablespoonfuls on parchement paper lined baking sheet and bake for about 12 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool to room temp. The soft center will harden once the cookies are out of the oven.

Thanks Dorie! I will be making these again when I am in the mood for a chewy, chocolate cookie! These were delightful!

  1. Looks great! Def have to make these for Ben, he loves any kind of cookie with oatmeal in them.

  2. Yay, another Dorie find!

    I have those silpats and I always forget to use them. I’m attached to Parchment!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. These look great and now I have american cups I can make these without the hassle of converting ingredients! My daughter and hubby would love these

  4. So I looked up this recipe last night after I saw them on your previous post. I think I’m definitely going to have to try these ones out.

  5. Hi Maria.
    Nice to see you on my blog.
    Your cookies look great!
    You can get purple potatoes at Trader Joe's (they come in a mixture w/ red & Yukon gold), or if you live close to Long Island, NY, I always find them in The Hamptons!
    Thanks for stopping by! I have a new blog to check out!

  6. I love the post! I saw those cookies in her book but was a little tentative to try them because I am not a fan of chocolate and cinnamon together. But I think you’re post convinced me that I should try ’em.

  7. I’m baking these now and added 1/2 teaspoon salt. Did the original recipe not include salt? Also, would you consider including grams for your ingredients? Thanks!
