  • 300g plain flour
  • 220g rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 100g Cocoa powder
  • 350g chocolate chips, I used milk chocolate chips but mixing dark and milk together also works brilliantly


  • STEP 1
    In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • STEP 2
    Gradually beat in the eggs and vanilla
  • STEP 3
    In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, and salt.
  • STEP 4
    Add this to the creamed mixture bit at a time and mix well. Then stir in the chocolate chips.

    Shape the mixture into 36 balls and place them 5cm apart on ungreased baking trays, pressing each ball down with the back of a fork.
  • STEP 6
    Bake in an oven preheated to 190C/gas mark 5 for 10-12 minutes, until edges start browning. Cool on wire rack
