What is better than Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with chocolate chips? CHOCOLATE Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with chocolate chips! I prefer to use bittersweet dark chocolate chips, but you can you any kind you prefer. This recipe has half the amount of sugar of most recipes, but just as yummy! The raisins and chocolate chips will add even more sweetness. This recipe makes 16 cookies.
Ingredients:1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine or butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3-1/2 tablespoons applesauce
1-1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, cream together the margarine or butter, brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla using a wooden spoon. Stir in the dry ingredients from other bowl and mix completely.
Add the oats and mix completely. Then fold in chocolate chips and raisins.
Roll approx. 1 heaping tablespoon into a ball and then flatten slightly. The mixture will be sort of wet. Place 8 per cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 - 11 minutes until lightly browned. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
