Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookies

A few years ago, I decided to make chocolate crinkles at Christmastime. I'd never really heard of them before (although apparently they are a staple this time of year), and everywhere I looked online it seemed that someone was raving about them. And they're chocolate. How could they be bad?

Either the internet lied, or I messed up the recipe, because they, not so good. Rock hard, crumbly and tasting of baking soda, I declared them the worst cookies ever.

Fast forward two years and I've been sucked in by the hype again (thanks to Pinterest, mostly). Plus, they we're one of the few cookies I could make that wouldn't require a trip to the store. Reading through the recipes I'd selected, I found that you have to refrigerate the dough for 3-4 hours. Hours!? No, I needed cookies asap.

On to plan B: I could make oatmeal cookies, but that sounded kind of boring without any chocolate chips. So, to get my fix, I decided to use cocoa powder to make chocolate almond oatmeal cookies!

The recipe is a hodgepodge of a few I had on hand, and is pretty delicious. I'd suggest trading the almonds for pecans, but it's great as is.

This doesn't solve my problem though - I still need to make those crinkles...

Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup & 2 TBS flour
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup Oatmeal
1/2 c. chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla.

In a separate large bowl, combine together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Add oats and almonds.

Form 1 1/2" balls from dough and place onto cookie sheets, flattening slightly with the bottom of a cup.

Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Thanks people! I just emailed my buddie I would reference their good managed IT consulting service in Calgary onlines, inside a good article. If ever you'll be searching to find an IT management service inside the general Alberta vicinity, these individuals are really incredible.

Of course, I really have to say the initial thought regarding this valuable blog was brilliantly given by Cameron over at They absolutely are an impressive mortgage brokers. We really relish a useful suggestion!

Notes - Where could I be with out you? - Very attractive web site. - Your grammatical skills are astounding! - Your images were remarkable. - I swear the very next time, it's me giving back the favour.
