TWD: Chocolate Oatmeal Drops

This TWD week has two host: Caroline and Claire of Bake With Us chose Chocolate Oatmeal Drops (got there for the recipe or have a look at page 75 in Dorie Greenspan's book).

This is an excellent choice for this week, as Dorie herself will have been involved into heavy cookie baking this last week... I have been in NYC by chance, when the Cookie Bar did pop up last year. What a great experience! The cookies are great and it is nice watching Dorie and her son talking with baking friends.

So, now what about this week's TWD-recipe?
Generally, I love doing cookies, but I am not all too much into chocolate in the batter. I like chocolate chunks, I like chocolate chips, but I am not thrilled by chocolate cookie dough.

Taking this into account, these cookies are very good. The combo of dark chocolate cookies and oats is a fine one, and gives the cookies a special texture.

They are easy to prepare and don't need a lot of baking experience. But don't misinterprete them as "healthy", just because they have some fiber in it :o]

(P.S.: If you wonder why some of the Drops in the first picture seem to be completely pale - these are Chunky Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Chocolate Chipsters, originally due long time ago in September 2008. I was looking for a way to bake something with the oat-leftovers, and peanutbutter is my all-time-favourite baking ingredient, so the choice was easy!)

  1. I liked the texture too. And like to think they're a *little* healthy :)

  2. Two cookies for the price of one!! They both look wonderful.

  3. How fun that you went to Cookie Bar last year! I love cookies too. These were oo for me, but your pB ones look good!

  4. They were easy to make and tasted so good! Yours look fab!!

  5. I too prefer non-chocolate batter but these were tasty. Thanks for baking with us this week.

  6. Love the look of the peanut butter ones, the color hides the oats. That is one thing I didn't like about these cookies, the pale oats in sharp contrast to the dark cookie dough. But they sure tasted great!
